Ports & interfaces
Wireless connection
Wireless is a term used to describe telecommunications in which electromagnetic waves (rather than some form of wire) carry the signal over part or all of the communication path.
Interface ports to connect pieces of equipment. USB (Universal Serial Bus) has become the most popular wired interface to connect peripherals. USB 2.0 supports speeds up to 480 Mbit/s (USB 1: 12 Mbit/s). The interface FireWire is also known as the IEEE 1394 standard. Enhanced IDE (EIDE)is sometimes referred to as Fast ATA, Fast IDE or ATA-2.
USB, Wi-Fi
Talk time
The total time a battery can power a device for calls. As the device drains the battery during a call, the talktime left in the battery is diminished until the device is turned off or the battery recharged. The longer the talktime the less frequently you will need to recharge. Talktime, expressed in hours and minutes, is much shorter than standby time because transmission requires more power.

Now this phone is sexy. And its tiny candy-bar formfactor, shiny, white fascia, and knobby plastic buttons make it not only attractive, but easy to use—plus its sound quality was noticeably better than the SMC phone’s. Battery life is roughly the same...
Netgear may claim that the SPH101 is the world's first Skype enabled mobile phone but in reality you're going to see very little difference in features between this product and those offered by most other vendors. We've already taken a look at SMC's WPSK1...
Bottom line If you're in the market for a Skype phone then the SPH101 warrants closer inspection as Netgear scores highly on build quality, design and call clarity. However, it does have a few niggling faults and the level of call related features on offer simply don...
This Wi-Fi- and Skype-compatible device boasts excellent call quality, but setup and dialing calls to regular phones can be arduous...
I wanted to fall in love with the Netgear Skype WiFi Phone SPH101. It has an attractive, iPodesque design, its been almost done for at least six months (thats when many of us in the tech press first saw prototypes), and Ive been teased by its pres...
Good Attractive iPod-like design. Good audio quality. Easy to set up and configure. Works well on personal home or small-office Wi-Fi networks where you have access to the configuration and/or security settings. Clear, bright color screen. Intuitive Skype inte...
Bad Expensive. Poor battery life. Network must be completely open and not require browser authentication to work with a public Wi-Fi network (a rarity). Difficult to enter passwords and WEP keys using phone keypad. Lacks USB-to-PC connectivity.
Bottom line This attractive Skype WiFi Phone from Netgear is a nifty toy for the gadget fiend who has plenty of disposable income and doesnt mind a very short battery life and limited connectivity options. Everyone else should hold off until the next release...
Make Skype calls without your computer switched on...
Even though the Skype Voice-over-IP (VoIP) service lets you talk to other people just like you would on the telephone, it still requires a computer to make it work. However, a new generation of Skype handsets is changing all that. The Netgear Skype WiF...
At last Skype without having to keep the PC switched on and its wireless too. The brand new Netgear Skype phone uses 802.11 WiFi to keep you connected to your Skype buddies without having to have a PC or server humming away 24/7, cool.
While Netgear was the first to announce its Wi-Fi Skype phone with much hoopla at this Januarys Consumer Electronics Show, it wasnt able to get me a phone for test until after SMCs phone had been and gone [reviewed here]. So since the products are s...
Before it was purchased by eBay last year, relatively few people (at least in this country) had heard of Skype, the Luxembourg-based Internet telephony provider. But after about a year of heavy marketing on this side of the Atlantic, more and more peop...
