This Belkin number syncs with Skype, the free online-telephony app, making for a simple but truly effective device for those who regularly go abroad or frequently make calls to friends or family overseas. Once you’ve got an account, you can call—and be called by—other Skype users directly. You don’t need a computer, just a free Wi-Fi connection. And with SkypeOut, you can even connect with ground or cellular lines in most countries for a measly two cents a minute. Sound quality isn’t on par with standard connections yet, but it’s just as good as Skype via computer—and a helluva lot more portable. 4 oz; Wi-Fi; belkin.com
