Using a Skype phone might be cheaper than your average landline, but it's only just catching up in the design and usability stakes.

This new Linksys phone, the CIT200, goes some way to addressing the balance - it's the first wireless Skype handset that we've seen with a colour screen.

As you'd hope, it works with all Skype calls whether they're to another PC or to a normal landline. But Linksys' DECT also adds some cool - by Skype phone standards - features in the shape of a speakerphone and the ability to display photos of your mates if you've added them to your Skype contacts.

You can run up to four of the phones off the one base station.

We're confirming the UK price and availability for you right now.

25th October update: it goes on sale 8th November for £100.
