Philips hints at Microsoft VoIP deal

Posted by David Hunter at 8:54 PM ET.

I guess they just couldn’t wait for Bill Gates’ keynote at CES:

Koninklijke Philips Electronics NV will expand its support for VOIP (voice over Internet Protocol) technology in new partnerships with eBay’s Skype division and Microsoft, and unveil new televisions designed to ease the strain of watching an exciting movie on a sexy $4,000 television, executives said during a press conference Wednesday at the 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show.

Microsoft Chairman and Chief Software Architect Bill Gates will provide more details about the new VOIP partnership between Philips and Microsoft later this evening in a keynote address kicking off CES, said Rudy Provoost, chief executive officer of Philips Consumer Electronics, a division of the parent company. He did not provide many details but said the companies will announce a VOIP product that would incorporate Microsoft’s MSN portal and its MSN Messenger instant-messaging software.
