TigerDirect gives us a hands-on look at the Netgear SPH-101 Skype phone, which features a 1.8-inch TFT-LCD display, four-way navigation stick, and a mini-USB connector. Product page. Video after the jump.

Although you initially need a computer to sign up for a Skype account, the Netgear only needs an open 802.11 b/g-compatible wireless access point to get you connected. Once you power up, you can easily configure the phone to auto-connect to your Skype account and Wi-Fi network so you’ll be ready to talk in seconds. The phone also easily connects to networks with WEP or WPA encryption
