ASUSTeK Computer Inc. will include the ASUS TeleSky telecom adaptor with the M2N/TeleSky and P5B/TeleSky (pictured) motherboards.
The TeleSky telecom adaptor converts ordinary phones into multi-functional Skype phones. It is a highly integrated application for traditional PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) and Skype VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) calls. The Skype VoIP system enables users to make free calls online or to dial low-cost calls to external landline and mobile phone numbers using SkypeOut.
With one jack connected to the phone and the other linked to the telephone line, the TeleSky™ can switch the house phone connection between PSTN and VoIP networks. Users can also use the phone to operate Skype functions, including SkypeIn, SkypeOut, Skype Conference, call waiting, speed-dial, and 3-way telephoning. The TeleSky supports both corded and cordless telephones.
The M2N/TeleSky supports the AMD AM2 Platform on a NVIDIA nForce 430 MCP design with dual-channel DDR2 800/667/533 memory. The P5B/TeleSky is based on an Intel LGA775 Platform, supporting Intel Quad-core CPUs, Intel Core2 Extreme, Intel Pentium Extreme, Pentium D, Pentium 4 and Celeron D CPUs with 1066/800/ 533 MHz memory, 1x PCI Express x16, 6x SATA 3Gb/s, RTL8111B PCI-E Gb LAN and 8-channel HD Audio.
Both motherboards work with Microsoft Windows 2000 (SP4), Microsoft Windows XP (SP2), Microsoft Windows MCE and Microsoft Windows XP 64bit.
