Mitron’s Managing Director, Michael Boorne said, “The WSKP100 is ideal for people at home, in business or even students on campus who are looking to make cost effective calls, without the hassle of switching on a computer. With more than 3 million Skype users in Australia, this phone will allow people to better utilise the rapidly growing number of free wireless access points which support browser-less authentication and an increasing number free public hotspots situated in key business travel locations and vacation areas. As wireless routers become more affordable for the home and small office, it will also provide users with more options for greater flexibility and mobility.”
The product comes with a Quality of Service (QoS) function that ensures voice data prioritisation over other data packet types, has support for Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA and WPA2) with pre-shared keys (PSK), and claims to deliver 3-hours continuous talk-time and 30-hour standby time.
