The Chicago Sun-Times rounds up the Belkin Skype phone, the Sony Mylo, and Vonage’s VPhone: The columnist likes the Belkin Wi-Fi Phone for Skype, which can connect over a local Wi-Fi network to allow Skype-to-Skype and other Skype-based calling. He found it flexible and liked the interface. While the list price is $190, he found the item for sale for as low as $160. The Mylo also uses Skype, and offers browsing and other features, but runs $350; the writer doesn’t have an opinion about the Mylo, which other reviewers have found somewhat lacking in usability.
The Vonage VPhone is a Windows-compatible USB dongle that has Vonage software and your configuration preloaded, as well as a headset jack; it comes with a headset the writer didn’t find comfortable. The VPhone is $40, and requires a monthly subscription to Vonage at $15 per month (500 North American minutes) or $25 per month (unlimited N.A. minutes).
