Logitech and Skype have announced an agreement to work together on marketing and promotional initiatives. As part of the agreement, Logitech will bundle up to 120 minutes worth of free vouchers for SkypeOut with Logitech USB Headsets sold in Europe, the United States and Canada. Skype counts more than 15 million users and allows them to make voice calls via their PC over the Internet to other Skype users for free, or to any landline or mobile phone worldwide at local rates. SkypeOut is the pre-pay service that allows Skype users to call traditional phone numbers
The packaging of qualifying Logitech audio products will indicate that the products are "Skype Certified." In the future, Logitech and Skype may extend the geographical reach of their co-marketing initiatives, and evaluate possible cooperation in product development.
"Logitech has a strong retail presence in the US, Europe and Asia," said Niklas Zennstrom, Skype CEO and co-founder. "We admire Logitech's focus on quality, innovation and style and are pleased to execute this agreement."
