We already showed you the Actiontec Chatterbox, a hands-free USB speakerphone for Skype, so it should be no surprise there's competition out there. Take this US Robotics USB Internet Speakerphone, the newest in the company's Skype family of products. Just $50, it includes echo cancellation technology, volume and mute buttons, full-duplex operation, and it's light and easy to tote around. 2006 looks like the big year for Skype, and aren't we happy! I can't say the same for the likes of Verizon, but they've been scamming us for so long with long distance calls, they deserve all they get.
