Linksys CIT200 Skype Phone

OK, so I love my gadgets. 
But then again, which techhead doesn’t right?
Anyway, I was surfing around and came accross what I thought looked like a pretty cool new gadget…

Why do I love thee?
Let me count the ways…
  1. A snap to install.
  2. Works just like a normal cordless phone.
  3. Sound quality is very good.
  4. It’s easy to use.

The best part about this little wonder is the fact that it seamlessly integrates with Skype.  I used to spend a fortune on calls to South Africa.  You know what I mean.  There is no way anybody can call their mom and get off the phone in anything under 30 minutes.  Even with long distance "special" rates that the phone companies give me, a typical call (which in my case is always more than an hour) would cost me anywhere from $50 on up.

With my little Skype phone I just make sure my account is topped up with about $10 and off I go.  A 1 hour and 10 minute call the other day cost me the earth shattering amount of $5!!! SWEET!!! 

The other thing that is really great about this phone is the fact that it works just like a normal cordless phone so technology "challenged" users don’t even need to know it’s using Skype and VoIP and all that techno junk! 
No, as far as they are concerned, it’s just a phone… a very CHEAP PHONE!
