Linux Phones with VoIP Capability in 2006

Trolltech Qtopia Phone 2.2 is the first Linux-based system for phones and wireless handhelds to support VoIP technology, according to Trolltech. It includes a reference open-source VoIP application using the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).

Qtopia is a user environment that includes ready-made applications such as a phone dialer, personal information management (PIM) tools, and an email client. Versions of Qtopia Phone are used by Motorola and Chinese handset makers such as Cellon.

Other enhancements in Qtopia Phone version 2.2 include an SMS client capable of sending messages to groups of recipients, and a general revamp of the look and feel of the user interface.
