Vonage launches UTStarcom's WiFi handset

Vonage launched its long-awaited WiFi handset that allows subscribers to use its VoIP service over any public WiFi network. UTStarcom manufactured the handset, dubbed the F1000. The phone supports all of the features of Vonage home phones, connects with any public 802.11b network and allows the user to save WiFi profiles to facilitate connectivity. The WiFi service will be free for Vonage customers, with the handset costing an estimated $80. The company is banking on muni-WiFi, where cities will blanket themselves in WiFi, to lead to the handset's ubiquity later on.
