On Three.com.au they claim it DOES have WiFi -

"Great internet browsing
For total hassle-free connectivity, integrated wireless LAN lets you hook it up to local computer networks, while BluetoothTM gives you wireless access to your PC and heaps of great mobile accessories."

u forgot to mention, on the ree tariff you also get an extra 300 3-3 calls every month, free windows messenger, free yahoo messenger, etc etc etc... quite a lot, eh? ive had a demo of the is phone and its a really nice wee handset, really easy to use the skype on it - and thats the whole point. 3 has had skype available with other handsets before, and i know that you can get VOIP programs for other handsets, but this is really simple on this one, plus the skype contacts are intergrated with your normal phonebook, and you automatically log into skype whenever you switch the phone

It works via the three network, using the 3G capabilities of the network to connect to the internet. There's no need to be in a wifi hotspot. It is made by amoi (i believe)and the skype functionality is in addition to the monthly price. The monthly price gives you an allowance of normal calls and texts or any combination of the two and the free skype calls are on top of that allowance. An excellent innovation!!

Telme has a GSM VoIP chip five months ago... it can be used in any GSM phone... I have a Nokia E65 with WiFi and I use the GSM SIM to call in any place, because it can use Internet (through WiFi) or the local GSM network... and I have also the Telme software to make free video calls... so... I donīt understand whatīs the "hot" about this skype phone... it seems to be rater very limited
