    The new Ooma, phone sex!

    Ooma: The Wonderful, Oddly-Named Phone for Google Voice
    BY Chris DannenFri Sep 18, 2009 at 4:28 PM

    There are a few major reasons why we all don't have VOIP phones: monthly subscription fees are a big one, as is cost of equipment. But Ooma may change all of that, while adding icing to the cake, with full native Google Voice support.

    Ooma is a one-time-cost voice-over-Internet solution. No monthly plans, and no "installation" that you can't do yourself. It doesn't require Google Voice, and vice versa; Voice works great with regular old phones. But together, the two offer the closest thing to telephony nirvana there is for a few hundred bucks.
    In October, Ooma is releasing a handset to go along with its existing VOIP router, and it has the magical ability to act as a native Google Voice phone. When you call out, your Voice number appears on the other caller's caller ID. When someone sends an SMS to your Google Voice line, it appears on the Telo handset. For a lot of people who've been casually messing with Voice, this is the convenience they needed to adopt it completely

    Btw, I posted similar in the Google forum so feel free to give one the can. But it's going to change telephony for a long time.
