A new Skype toy for Mac

Sound devices are nice, especially when they are developed for using them with Skype.
They are also important for Varras Consultancy. We can’t answer the phone calls of our clients with cracky, noisy, half-working devices.

I am always on the look for new devices. Or call them Skype toys. Running Windows, there is a wide range of phones available. For those running Mac, there isn’t much choice.
But yesterday I stumbled upon the
Dialog Phone and liked it immediately.

Dialog is a wire free phone that offers perfect Skype and iChat AV integration, letting you chat for as long as you want to anyone in the world.
Dialog is compact and discreet, fitting in with your office or home environment.
There are no wires to clutter up your desk space and you can use your phone within a 20 feet perimeter of your computer.
After all a phone should be used as a phone. Simply plug the wire free adapter into a USB port of your computer and start talking!

The $80 device requires Mac OS X 10.4 and a USB 2.0 port (and a G4/G5- or Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.4).
