Wi-Fi VoIP phones generally disappoint, but the SpectraLink e340 comes close to hitting the mark. It has good battery life, reasonably clear audio, and it even survived a night in the rain. The required proxy server is somewhat of a nuisance, but adds QoS tuning to significantly improve call quality and boost the overall appeal. At $449 (£225) per phone, the e340 is not for a tight budget, however.
