Voice Over IP Walkie Talkies

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 ! Regards, Martin

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
