CES 2006: USRobotics' Skype speakerphone


2006 should be a big year for Skype, based on how many new products have already been launched around it. Another one to enter the fray at the CES is the USR9610 speakerphone from USRobotics.

The big selling point, apart from free Skype calls, is that this phone is hands free. With full-duplex operation, this USB speakerphone features echo-cancellation, volume controls and a mute button. And it’s small – so you can take it with you if you want to make free calls away from the office.

It will retail in the US later this month for $49.99. No details of a UK date as yet.

    Speaker is very good, but microphone is not. You can hear the other person well, but there is a lot of distortion in what they hear from you.
