Like deja vu, all over again

Yesterday in a post on BT's free call giveaway, I included a link to the Siemens Gigaset as an example of how Skype was looking to get users away from the PC, just as BT strives to drive them there. Little did I know that the cobranded version was being launched today, or that the offer would include a SkypeOut voucher for up to 120 minutes of calls. Really smart UK consumers will sign up for BT broadband, use the unlimited national calls for a year, discover Skype if they haven't already (because they'll be spending so much time making calls from their computer in 2005), then buy the Gigaset and Skype everyone else, possibly forever.
