Logitech Introduces VoIP Speakerphone-Headset-Mouse-Keyboard

Logitech introduced its "EasyCall Desktop" -- a combination of a mouse, keyboard, headset and speakerphone optimized for VoIP. T
he EasyCall Desktop's full-duplex speakerphone includes Logitech "RightSound" Technology, which eliminates echoes for headset-free Internet phone calls. The speakerphone acts as the control center for the Internet calling experience, with volume up and down, mute, call pick-up, and call hang-up buttons. The product also comes with a stereo headset that can be plugged into a convenient port on the speakerphone when privacy is important.

A full communications panel on the cordless keyboard provides the ability to launch Internet communications applications, change online status, and make and accept calls. Convenient speed-dialing controls offer one-touch calling to friends, family, or co-workers. These easily accessible buttons can be used to store and dial either telephone numbers or IP addresses associated with user names. The product is optimized for use with Internet calling applications, such as Yahoo! Messenger with Voice and AOL's AIM service in the U.S., and Skype in Europe.

MSRP is $129.99.
