Got a Skype phone for the wife, let see how it goes. It looks good.
You connect it to your Windows PC via USB and to a PTSN line. Then you can see who is online on your Skype buddy list and call them directly. You can also dial PTSN numbers.
The phone is wireless DECT-based, and so far, in my limited testing, it works very very well.
