When I read this announcement I looked at it as another product coming out. When I add in the recent double play from Verizon I see the merits of this in another light.
What I really want to see is VoIP wireless unit, that is both base station and cordless phone in the house. 802.11g, 54 megs of throughput 5.8 mhz handsets that talk to the wireless access point or router, and the option of giving each handset it's own SIP address and phone number that can be configured easily.
What I've seen so far in the first generation WiFi VoIP handsets have been less than blowing my socks off.
