Asus AiGuru S1: Wireless Music Skype Phone

Note: The original draft of this post about the Asus AiGuru S1 wireless music Skype phone was from a long time go, when dinosaurs roamed… well not that long ago. Here is the post, for those of you who are still interested. I for one, am very interested in Skype. I hope they can make a Skype/cellular phone that automatically connects to WiFi networks if available resulting in more anytime minutes when  you really need them. 

Asustek Computer’s AiGuru S1 supports Skype and has WiFi built-in and features a wireless music player function and remote control. WiFi is the 802.11b/g type and uses the wireless connection to make Skype calls without the need of being tethered to a PC. The music is played through a built-in speaker and you can access and stream songs stored in the PC via WiFi. You can also use the AiGuru S1 as a remote control for Microsoft’s Media Player.

The display seems to be a monochrome type with a blue background, which is quite low-tech compared to Netgear’s SPH101, which has a nice color display.
