Samsung EW-700 WiFiFoneThe new Samsung EX-700 WiFiFONE is the product of a joint effort between Samsung and Eidicom. While it could possibly be a little “easier on the eyes” the EX-700 looks like an impressive product to further enhance and improve the usability of VoIP phones.

Keep in mind that despite its looks this is still a VoIP phone which requires Wi-Fi, so it gets access the same way you would with a PC by using your own wireless network or finding a public “hotspot”. They have also added a lot of cool features not usually found in a VoIP phone to date which makes it somewhat of a hybrid VoIP smartphone.

Some of the features on the Samsung EW-700 on what looks like a custom OS includes a web browser, IM client, multimedia player, a 2 megapixel camera, the ability for video and …

You see, if you have never used this, up until now it only worked when you had the phone physically connected to the machine. This is nice if your sitting at your PC and you want to talk into a phone instead of trying to fumble with speakers and mic’s and trying to master the full duplex …
