Will VoIP-enabled handsets replace cell phones? Would you ditch your cell for a product such as the F-1000, UTStarcom's forthcoming 802.11b device?
The F-1000 will sell for less than $100 and be made available to Vonagesubscribers within the next few months.
I think the Vonage name, along with the low price point of this device, will be attractivetousers who are tired of spotty cellphone coverage andmonthly bills that are somewhat higher than what Vonage charges.
It will be interesting to see what type of pricing structure Vonage offers for VoIP cell.
I have two questions for you. I'd like to see your comments on the following:
What wouldVonage have to charge for Wi-Fi VoIP in order for you to at least consider dropping your current cell plan?
Noting that the service will be 802.11b-compliant, will you hold off until 802.11g-compliant Wi-Fi VoIP is available?
