I would like a device that looks and works like a walkie-talkie except
it communicates with a wireless 802.11g Access Point and uses voice
over IP to transmit voice communications over a WAN.  I believe that
this would have several benefits over a conventional cell phone, i.e.
no monthly charges, in some cases clearer communications, improved
security.  To make a call to another walkie-talkie on the WAN you could
type in the IP address for that device.  The device should be
lightweight, small, and can easily be carried on a person.  Does a
product like this exist?

   You'd be better off aliasing the MAC address to a real name, and storing
that info in the "walkie talkie's" address book.  If something like that
were to ever be made that is...

There are several softphone clients for PDAs if that is a feasible solution.

You can get a WIFI VoIP phone like Zyxel P2000W, ( few others: Cisco , Senao
etc.) which will work wherever you can connect to WIFI.
There is a catch, they aren't cheap !
One day they will be common place and combined with mobile phones...,
but I need one now !

P2000W is not a very good bit of kit, if I'm totally honest.

We've never really got ours working "perfectly"..

Actually, it's no called IoIP or Intercom over Internet Protocol.
The idea is just that...use the LAN/WAN for Push to Talk Intercoms.
Digital Acoustics ii3 Intercoms www.digitalacoustics.com/ii3.htm
seem to be the largest manufacturer of IoIP and VoIP type intercoms.
