IPEVO Skype phone

IPEVO, a Silicon Valley-based subsidiary of PChome Online specializing in affordable Skype-enabled devices has launched a new USB-based Skype phone called the Free-1. The Free-1 USB phone only costs $29.99 so they aren't kidding when they say that they offer "affordable Skype" solutions. They even have $15.99 models on their website.

PChome Online actually launched the first co-branded website with Skype in July 2004 in Taiwan which they claim helped make Taiwan one of the most successful markets for Skype, and now they are going after the U.S. market through IPEVO.

Here are the specs straight from IPEVO's site:

  • Superior sound quality (16KHz sampling rate).
  • User programmable buttons enhances customization.
  • Smart and stylish design. Small form factor and lightweight.
  • 10 selectable ring tones (include silent).
  • USB Plug-and-Play technology.
  • PC sound card not required.
  • Independent use of phone and sound card allows for Skype call while listening to music on PC.
  • LED indicates USB connection state plus off-hook condition.
  • Acoustically isolated speaker and microphone to eliminate echo.
  • Built-in volume control & mute button
