"When it begins shipping during the first quarter of 2007, the new D-Link V-CLICK line of phones will feature tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900 Mhz) and 802.11 Wi-Fi (2.4Ghz) access. By sliding a cellular service provider’s SIM Smartcard or chip into the V-CLICK phone, the user automatically gains GSM access. Stored phone numbers and address books are also automatically taken into the phone via the SIM Smartcard or chip.
With a simple press of the V-CLICK button, the phone activates or deactivates the Wi-Fi connection that allows users to access websites or an Internet phone service, enjoying the convenience of reduced communication costs, faster transfer speeds, and increased productivity resulting from dual-mode phone access."
How cool is that? GSM / WiFi phone – and all on a pay-as-you-go cellular plan. Expected to start shipping early next year with an MSRP of $599. A little pricey but then again what isn’t these days.
