Skype VOIP Wireless Phone for Mother’s Day

Skype has achieves 100 Million users. My mother is also one of the recent new user of Skype. My mother is a Taiwanese, she uses Skype to chat online with her sister(my auntie) in Taiwan. But, my mother, a non-computer user, does not feel comfortable to talk in front a computer.

Therefore, I plan to get a Skype VOIP wireless phone for mom at coming Mother’s Day.

Why wireless?

There are already many USB VOIP phones for Skype but, with the USB phone, you are required to sit nearby your computer because of the wire length limitation.

With wireless Skype phone, you can talk to your Skype pals anywhere in the house, such as on the sofa, in the toilet, and so on. It is an ideal gadget for my mom who prefer to talk privately. :)
