Review: Linksys CIT200 Cordless Internet Telephony Kit

Closing Thoughts

Linksys Cordless Internet Telephony Kit

The CIT is a well-designed and nicely executed product that is probably going to find its way into the hands of many heavy Skypers. It's perfect for freeing yourself from being chained to your PC while being able to make and receive Skype calls, with small size, light weight, clear display and trouble-free Skype integration. I think it will find use mainly for non-mobile Skypers, however, since the base and handset are a bit much to lug around compared to a Bluetooth headset.

The main disadvantage the CIT has versus the DUALphone is the latter's ability to handle both Skype and normal PSTN calling. If that doesn't matter and you're looking for a way to cordlessly Skype, then the CIT is the product for you. But make sure you shop around and look for a price as close to $100 as you can get, since some of the on-line prices I've seen are way out of line.
