I haven't had a home phone in years. I don't even want a VoIP line; I stick with my mobile phone all the way. If you do like to have a phone in the house other than your mobile for one reason or another and you want cool features like video calling, Vox Communications has a new VoIP handset for you. The phone is called the Ojo Phone.
It has a big 7-inch LCD screen on it that lets you see who you are talking to and the user can pick custom wallpaper on the device to spice up the looks of it. The phone is plug and play with the only thing the user needs to do to set it up being plug it into an Ethernet cable and hook up the power. The phone will complete the reminder of the setup itself.
The phone also has a SD card slot and a port for flash drives. When one source is plugged into the device, you can use the 7-inch frame as a digital photo frame. The phone will also hook to an external monitor for a larger viewable image and it has a phone book too. The phone book can have a photo applied to it for your contacts if the flash drive or SD card is installed. The device will ship in Q1 2011 at an undisclosed price and only works on the Vox VoIP network apparently.
