On Monday, D-Link announced that it will start distributing its ‘clamshell’ Wi-Fi phone. The new Wi-Fi phone is available in the black and silver colour. The phone, which is compatible with VoIP services like Vonage, operates very much like the cell phones they are patterned after. The phones have an attractive colour screen, caller ID, polyphonic ringtones, 100 entry address book, and text messaging support.
D-Link Phone features:
According to D-Link, the phone is capable of three hours of talk time, and up to 70 hours of standby time, which is around half of the battery life of average cellular phones. It supports three types of Wi-Fi encryption, WEP, WPA, and WPA2, and will support the Public SIP Telephone Network through a future firmware upgrade. Both the D-Link DPH-540 and DPH-541 retail for $249.99 USD.
