DigiTimes today reported that declining market share in North America over the past year has prompted Linksys to launch plans to pursue other markets and bring North America revenue contribution to "below 50%".
Linksys today finally publicly announced its WIP310 Wireless-G IP iPhone. The 802.11b/g SIP phone first showed up in the FCC ID database in late 2006, but was only previewed with select customers during last year.
The "candy bar" style phone has a 1.8" backlit color LCD screen and is spec'd at 3 hours of talk time and 50 hours standby. It supports WEP and WPA PSK wireless security and WiFi Protected Setup.
The phone is primarily aimed at service providers and will not be available until 3Q2008 at a suggested list of $200.
The Linksys WRT150N V1.1 has been added to the Router and Wireless Charts. This is Linksys' least-expensive draft 802.11n router, which is being replaced by the WRT160N when current stock is exhausted.
If you're looking for a cheap way to upgrade to draft 802.11n wireless and want to do it the Linksys way, keep an eye peeled for sales.
We've learned that Linksys will be discontinuing its least-expensive WRT150N when current inventory runs out. This will leave the WRT160N, which was introduced in January as Linksys' only entry-level draft 802.11n router.
