USRobotics has begun shipping two new Skype Certified handsets today. Both the USR9601 USB Internet Phone and the USR9602 USB Internet Mini Phone integrate seamlessly with Skype and plug into an available USB port.
The phones feature technology enhancements designed to prevent echoes and resolve the "tunnel" sound Internet calls can generate with lower quality hardware. The integrated keypad on both phones allows users to place calls to Skype contacts with speed dial numbers assigned, or to dial telephones anywhere in the world with SkypeOut.
The USR9601 USB Internet Phone features a bright, high-resolution, blue back-lit LCD screen that provides convenient access to contact and call status, and supports Skype caller ID. The USR9601 is available at major retailers and online for US$49.95.
The USR9602 USB Internet Mini Phone (pictured) serves as an alternative to inexpensive headsets and is priced with entry level users in mind. The USR9602 is available at major retailers and online for US$24.95.
The two newly Skype Certified USB Internet Phones join three other USRobotics Skype products, including the USR9600 USB Internet Phone (available in select markets only), the Skype Certified USR9610 USB Internet Speakerphone and the USR9620 USB Telephone Adapter. Additional product line extensions can be expected in the third quarter of 2006.
