LINDY’s Auto-launch Feature Makes Skype Calls Easy Thursday 19 July 2007 PDF Print LINDY announces new USB VoIP Phone Stockton-on-Tees, UK (19th July 2007) – LINDY Electronics announced today its latest USB VoIP Phone that allows users to take advantage of free and inexpensive phones calls over the internet, with all the ease that is associated with using a regular phone. Once it is connected to the PC, Skype users will be able to benefit from the phone’s auto launch functionality that launches the popular VoIP software as soon as the handset is picked up. Also compatible with other VoIP software such as MSN and Yahoo Messenger, the LINDY USB VoIP Phone allows users to make calls between PCs and from a PC to a landline or mobile phone. Its two piece design gives the look of a more traditional telephone, whilst the handset can also be turned around and slotted upright into the base. “VoIP can sometimes be a barrier for technophobes, particularly if they are just presented with a headset and microphone,” comments Andrew Ingram, Product Manager of LINDY Electronics. “Our two piece VoIP phone makes users feel like they’re using a normal telephone and the auto launch for Skype makes VoIP so easy that even your granny could use it.” The LINDY USB VoIP Phone comes with a 1.3m USB Cable and can be desk or wall mounted. It requires no soundcard, eliminating the need to unplug speakers or other audio equipment before use. In addition to dialling numbers, the keypad allows you to navigate through the Skype software and also has a quick dial function. Compatible with Windows 2000, XP and Vista and with four separate ring tones to choose from, the phone is ideal for using VoIP both at home and in the office. The LINDY USB VoIP Phone, part no 42980 is available now, RRP £21.99.
