D-LINK V-CLICK GSM/WIFI Phone
After D-Link's previous WiFi phone, they have now announced yet another mobile phone they will soon be pushing to the market. The D-Link V-Click is an unlocked Linux mobile phone, with dual-mode GSM / 802.11 Wifi support. The phone can not only use the Wifi for VoIP needs, but the phone will also ship with the Opera mobile web browser. It also supports email and all other needs. The price is quite steep though at approximately $600 USD, and won't be available until Q1'07.

Since the phone is unlocked and looks quite interesting, I am personally thinking of picking up one next year once they are available. It looks quite interesting nonetheless.
