Ahead of Vonage and Skype, launches a portable WiFi phone that allow users to make Internet calls over any open WiFi hotspot.

Ask not what your broadband connection can do for you, ask what your neighbor’s can do for you instead. If you have a portable WiFi phone, your neighbor’s high speed Internet connection can perform telephone miracles. Just ask Romeo Mendoza, CEO of Internet phone company Today they launched an affordable, portable WiFi phone aimed at the mass market. The latest and greatest in telephone technology, these phones allow users to make calls from any open WiFi hotspot for next to nothing.

While typical Internet phone customers are restricted to plugging a regular home or office phone into an adapter that is linked to a high speed Internet connection, WiFi phone users experience freedom. WiFi phones combine two very hot technologies, WiFi, which creates zones of high speed wireless connectivity, and Voice over Internet Protocol, also known as VoIP, which enables users to make phone calls over the Internet. WiFi phones allows users to make calls from anywhere there is an open WiFi hotspot which is virtually everywhere nowadays. You find hotspots in coffee shops, hotels, and airports. Google has plans to blanket all of San Francisco with free WiFi access. By the year 2007, fifty million homes in North America, Europe and Asia will have WiFi connections.

WiFi phones are sold by other Internet phone providers, but with prices hovering around $300, worldwide sales last year crept in at just 143,000 units. “We knew if we introduced a phone at half the price, we’d be more accessible to the general public,” says Romeo. “Priced at just $155, the WiFi phones are now more than just a cool gadget, they’re a must have.”

The discounted phone rates pose a significant threat to traditional and cellular operators. Because traditional and cellular calls are run through lines monopolized by companies, calls are substantially more expensive than VoIP calls which are routed through the Internet. “Whether you’re calling for a cab after a long night in Las Vegas or checking in with your wife while you’re on a business trip in Hong Kong, you can make unlimited calls to the U.S. There are no roaming charges,” says Romeo. Calls to countries other than the U.S. start at just two cents per minute.

“As the world continues to move towards WiFi as the standard, WiFi phones will dominate the market,” Romeo notes.

Sales are already spiking. estimates they’ll move over 30,000 units this month. “The response been incredible,” says Romeo. “Our WiFi phones are ringing off the hook.”
