VoIP and Consumer Electronics Blur

January 6, 2005

The line between what we call the VoIP industry and consumer electronics blurred further this morning with the announcement of Uniden entering the VoIP market, more specifically WiFi telephony otherwise known as wireless VoIP. According to Uniden: The Uniden UIP1868 is a 5.8GHz digital expandable cordless phone with built-in VoIP adapter, expandable up to ten handsets, allowing consumers to experience the extended features, convenience and affordability of VoIP communication in every room of their homes.
 My prediction of the iPOD like VoIP consumer electronics device may become a dream if there are now dozens of WiFi telephony phones available now but then again there were dozens of MP3 players around before Apple invented the iPOD and somehow companies like Creative Labs (I am certainly dating myself... They are just called Creative these days) are playing catch-up in a market they used to dominate.
