Part mouse, part Skype speakerphone, the Skype USB Phone (ASG-142 MouseFone for you model number freaks out there) tries to make your VoIP experience as pleasurable as possible. It's also supposedly the first such combination mouse/speakerphone, so rejoice. When closed shut, it functions as a mouse, one with an 800 DPI optical sensor. Open her up with your powers of seduction and it works as Skype speakerphone, complete with a 1.3-inch LCD for caller ID and the like. Unfortunately, it appears to only work for Windows. Go ahead, keep shutting Mac users out of the fun. We're too busy hanging out with supermodels anyway.

Right, that's the part I've never understood, are you expecting to be able to use your computer while you're talking on the mose phone...

The need for handsets for soft voip-phones is something I've need quite understood. I actually prefer to use my bluetooth headset with my soft phone (also works with cellphone of course) since it leaves the hands/shoulder free to use the laptop at that point...
