Linksys WIP 320 WIFI Phone For Skype Product Review
The Good: The Linksys WIP320 is extremely easy to set-up and use. Besides an easy set-up and easy use, the WIP320 has a sleek design and user interface that makes it a conversation piece inside of the home and a great introduction to Skype for those visiting who may not know anything about it.
The Bad: The phone is sort of pricey ($169.99) for a phone with limited features. As with all WiFi phones, the Linksys WIP320 also suffers from a dismal battery life. If you turn it on and leave it on the table, like you would a cell phone, you will be lucky to get more than six hours before you have to plug it in…not exactly ideal. The biggest drawback, however, is that fact that you can not send text or sms messages to other Skype users, severely limiting it’s appeal for those of use looking to Skype for more than POTS replacement.
