Linksys WIP320 Review

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.

Free cellular calls without a sim card!

Are you doubtful that it is possible?
Well, you don’t need to be an hacker or a computer geek, but simply you need a cellular phone, a free Wi-Fi network and an application called fring.
In the video below is shown how this is possible thanks to fring, an application that uses your mobile internet connection to make peer-to-peer VoIP calls.

By using a Wi-Fi network connected to internet it isn’t even necessary a sim card!
A good idea to use your home or office wireless network for an unusual way to make and receive calls with your mobile device.
Furthermore you can use this system also in airports, hotels and all places that offer you a free hotspot.

Oh, I nearly forgot that fring works over 3G, GPRS and Wi-Fi networks and dynamically adapts itself to the optimal network !

GizmoCall Browser Based Calling Service Review

SIPphone Releases Gizmocall

gizmocallSIPPhone, the company behind Gizmo Project, the open standards VoIP soft client today launched GizmoCall, a browser plug-in that allows use to make calls via a web browser. The premise behind the service is pretty simple: go to the site, dowload the browser plug-in, enter the phone number you want to call, hit call, and the call is initiated. All you need is a headset/microphone plugged into your computer. Nothing else is required.

More About GizmoCall

The GizmoCall service is so simple that is not much to it, but currently, there is one limitation. Call length limited to up to 10 minutes per day to most landlines & select mobile phones around the world. Hopefully, in the future, you will be able to purchase “credits” in order to utilize the service for more then 10 minutes a day. Also, a la Skype and Sitfono, they are offering a “Click to Call Me” button for your website.
