I’m a regular skype user and now want to use a handset to make Skype calls. My computer speakers and microphone are not very convenient when I have other people in my computer room.
Initially I wanted to utilise my old handsets and found the D-link DVG-2101SP which looked ideal but seems to be out of stock everywhere I look.
I’m a bit out of my depth right now when it comes to looking for these Skype related products and thought I’d ask Geek Zone to see if anyone could recommend a wireless handset for making Skype calls that is available in NZ.
Check out Harvey Normans - It was over a year ago, but I picked up my dual line Doro Skype phone for $35. This is cordless and plugs into your PC as well as your actual landline so you can make/recieve calls from both systems :) (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Doro-Combined-Phone-Black-Silver/dp/B000K7BJ7G) - the review there is poor but Id say they got a bum unit as my folks have one of the same phones and have no problems as well :)
HN had a Philips based one as well but was a 2.4ghz one so went for the 1.8ghz Doro to avoid any potential wifi issues.
