Several manufacturers at Computex 2005 showed their new VOIP handsets. Some of them are just handsets for PCs and do not have Wi-fi integrated. Most of them look like mobile phones. Not sure what the idea is here as I would need to carry two phones. I am more a believer in Mobile Phones with integrated Wi-fi.

Wistron (photo) shows VOIP service independent phones in mobile phone look. The Wistron SRP-81 and SKPD-1 apparently feature an integrated Wi-Fi sniffer. The Register has more details on the Wistron phones.

Then there are the Senao SI-7800H-L and SI-682H VOIP phones, which also feature a mobile phone look. More about those on Engadget.

VOIP handset are not new. We reported about the first Skype handsets last year: The PCPhoneLine VPT1000 and the Persol Persol PBT-002. Vonage also already announced the F-1000 VOIP phone.
