Netgear has updated the firmware for the SPH101 Wifi Skype phone. It went from to Unfortunately I do not have release notes for the firmware, which could tell me about all the changes. I can confirm that there is a new entry field on the home screen. It lets you type in numbers as well as names. The phone UI is now available in five languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish.
