Abstract

Wi-Fi phone customers need to go with two devices in their pocket: (1) the company Wi-Fi phone, and (2) their own cell phone. New Wi-Fi phones may replace the phones in the offices. If those Wi-Fi phones had an extra port for a Cell Phone Stick (GSM/GPRS and UMTS in future), employees could use their SIM cards (private or company-owned) to get a two-in-one device (office phone and cell phone). These Cell-Phone-Stick-ready Wi-Fi phones have several advantages: - Employees don't need to go around with two devices in their pockets. - Companies can now buy one and still choose if they want to pay for the SIM card or not. Managers could get a Cell Phone Stick with company paid SIM card in addition to Wi-Fi phone and others could get just the Wi-Fi phone.
