Skype to launch VoWLAN phone

Skype CEO announced at a conference in Paris earlier this week that they will be launching a voice over WLAN phone by the end of this year. Yes a phone not just an application - is Skype digging itself a E911 hole...? I wonder...

Add this to the similar announce ment from Verizon, and we have a competition for the VoWLAN market already in place.

It'll be very interesting to watch Skype's progress on this. My basic point of concern is the network model - will a VoWLAN Skype still be P2P...? We'll know soon enough.
