Auvi launches Skype products

Auvi Technologies, a designer and developer of digital entertainment hardware and emerging technologies, today announced its development strategy encompassing a complete line of Voice-over-IP (VoIP) and Skype-enabled products aimed at residential customers. The product image to the right is "coming soon" according to their website, with no additional feature specs, but it appears to me to be a cordless Skype phone product similar to the Linksys CIT200 I reviewed. Interesting how both the handset and the docking cradle have a keypad. I'd venture a guess that this must mean it has an embedded speakerphone.

According to Auvi, "Ranging from PC-controlled Skype accessories to standalone cordless speakerphones / entertainment hubs, Auvi offers retailers unique turnkey solutions in next generation communication hardware, as well as service. Furthermore, these products enable retailers to benefit from new growth and profit opportunities through existing VoIP partnerships. End-users receive innovatively designed, easy-to-use products with exceptional value."

"The VoIP sector is booming yet consumers are being led to believe that there are only a few choices available," said Santosh Patel, CEO and president of Auvi Technologies. "Our strategic direction is not to compete head-to-head against the service providers of the industry, but rather provide retailers with products that bridge the gap between VoIP and traditional communication hardware. Auvi’s line-up offers them new opportunities to grow this category and make VoIP available to the masses.”

"The consumer is the ultimate benefactor with VoIP and Skype. Auvi’s product roadmap gives the consumer more choice, more unique solutions and best of all, more value  to truly take advantage of this emerging technology," added Patel.

Auvi’s first VoIP and Skype-enabled products will launch in the U.S. and Canada at the end of November through select retail outlets. The complete line will be showcased at the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 4, Booth 35652, January 5-8, 2006.
