  • Make it "free"

    i.e. part of Longhorn. Vonage charges $9.95/month EXTRA to use THEIR softphone - which I haven't.

  • VOIP softphone

    the idea makes great sense for a lot of reasons. First, the industry is finally making an effort to developing computers and software that makes businesses more productive. Entertainment is fine and I'm glad it has made a lot of companies profitable. But most of us, whatever our business, use computers to communicate and this development finally brings that concept to fruition. Bringing all of the tools of communication to a laptop is a subperb idea.

  • Xten builds softphones for Yahoo!, Belkin, Deutsche Telekom...

    Wow Russell, what a revelation. Xten has been building award-winning softphones and SDKs for all the big players for years. Maybe you should do a story on them, at least their stuff works and is being sold TODAY.

    • Nero's Soft Phone Works as Well

      Chuckonvoip,

      I work for Nero and Xten's soft phone isn't the only product that's out there. Nero's SIPPS has a larger deployment in Europe than Xten. log onto www.sippstar.com or www.nero.com to download a demo.

  • Laptop makers

    Since Microsoft doesn't make PCs, what's to stop a laptop manufacturer from designing a laptop with a display screen, and linking up with Skype or others to integrate with their software and develop a softphone?
