Interesting, I've never seen this one. Can you attach a price to this 

Anyway, why do you want a phone with both IP and PSTN connectivity? 
Afraid of your own courage? And why would you want to have a second, free 
PSTN jack apart from the one for your fax? :-) Personally I'd ride the 
hype and go for a hardware SIP phone (e.g. SNOM 105), not a H323 phone.

The passive Fritz! works fine with caller ID etc. Some people here on the 
list state that they'd recommend active cards for production systems, but 
I think for SOHO you'll be fine with the cheap passive one. Just make 
sure you use CAPI (chan_capi) instead of isdn4linux (i4l).

Cheers, Philipp
