SMC's Wi-Fi Skype Phone Fails to Impress

Tom's Networking took the new Wi-Fi Skype phone from SMC for a test drive and unfortunately it didn't live up to their expectations. It doesn't allow for text chat nor browser-based authentication for access points and has bad phone ergonomics that make it annoying to use for long periods as well as short battery life and bad sound quality (how's that for a run-on). However, you don't have to have a computer running Skype to get it working; it's a standalone Skype solution.
