You can now use any phone to make Voice over Internet (VoIP) calls. The SOYO Group has announced the G1681 VOIP phone adapter, a compact, lightweight, portable adapter that you can plug into any broadband Internet connection and a telephone. Simply wait for the dial tone, and you're ready to make and receive calls. The SOYO G1681 adapter converts your regular telephone's analog signal to a digital signal, which can then be transmitted over the Internet, saving you money on long-distance and international calls whenever you make a call, from anywhere in the world.
You can also connect your regular phone line from the phone company to G1681 and use the same phone set to answer both regular calls and VOIP calls. Also, the SOYO G168 adapter lets you select which network--Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) or IP--to use for making calls. You can easily program the adapter so that with the touch of a key, your call will be made over the PSTN, saving you money when making local telephone calls. The SOYO G168 costs $75.
