WiFi + PDA + Voip=?

After a recent sitting of an interesting combination of technology at My Pocketphone.com I began to wonder about the viability of various soft phones and Voip.
While there is real potential for Voip to lower the cost of long distance telephone calls, the simple fact is there needs to be compatibility amongst handsets for everything to really challenge existing cellphone and landline technology.

Take a close look at mypocketphone.com and you will see that, there is a relatively low barrier to entry for anyone to create a soft phone for a given handset.

The real heavy lifting is what goes on behind the scenes to make the call happen.
Someone needs to run the server that matches the caller and the receiver and this is where the phone companies dominate.

In an enterprise setting, it is easy enough to allocate network resources to wired devices. Toss wifi into the mix and things are likely to get dicey as coverage areas can be a challenge let alone the variability of bandwidth created by multiple users.

While there are many benefits to voip, there will be many bumps in the road ahead, as people sort out compatibility issues.

Hi, just wondering if anyone has ever tried SKYPE for telephone calls over the internet?? A pal of mine says it's brilliant and works out much cheaper than conventional calls, just wondered if anyone else has signed up for it?
