D-Link's DPH-540 flip-phone is ready to surf wireless VoIP networks

D-Link is adding a dash of style to WiFi phones with the new DPH-540 WiFi  flip-phone. The 802.11g based phone allows you to tap into an existing VoIP phone service and doesn't require the use of a computer.

The DPH-540 uses Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), and is ready to use with an Internet (VoIP) phone service plan. With echo cancellation, packet delay compensation and lost packet recovery, a VoIP call over a wireless network will sound similar to regular phone service.

The DPH-540 features a large color display and has all of the features you would come to expect from a modern phone including text messaging.

Details on pricing and availability have not been released at this time.

so I have have vonage in the house and a wireless g router I should be able to dump all my 5.8, 2.4 and other land line type phones for this. Sweet. These out to be as cheap as any other home phone. Atleast once the phone companies start competing. uniden, panasonic, or any company that makes a phone. Being able to carry it outside would be a bonus but probably a hassle finding free spots and setting up any access keys. I just want a six pack for around the house.

No kidding. I hate my stupid house phone. 80$ and it sounds like crap, gets interference all the time, and the handset is bulky. Look at any housephone, they all have the same problems. This would be _the_ device to get me to switch to voip.

Cost = Fail or Win!

With this sort of feature, it's likely you'd be making far less mobile calls...


Dlink brand maybe
