One of the things that turned me off about Skype as a voice over IP solution is lack of selection in phone styles. Currently, you’re either chained to a computer or you’re chained to an seriously ugly handset that keeps you in close proximity to a PC. Actiontec has me re-considering Skype as a serious VoIP alternative offering a box that connects any traditional landline phone to a Skype enabled PC giving new life to that cheap 900mHz cordless model that just won’t die. Echo cancelling features purport to put an end to the delay common to many VoIP connections. The device also connects to a traditional landline and can switch between the two, making the process virtually seamless.
