LINDY launches optical mouse with built-in VoIP phone

Stockton-on-Tees, UK (18th October 2007) – Always looking to provide users with additional value in its USB desktop peripherals by combining practicality and functionality, LINDY Electronics announced today its USB Optical Mouse with Built-in VoIP Phone. Complete with speaker phone functionality and a headset for hands free use, the mouse is still fully functional even when a phone call is taking place.

At first glance it looks like any other stylish USB mouse, but flip it open, and a keypad and LCD display are revealed, turning the optical mouse into a VoIP phone. The integrated speaker delivers a ringtone to let the user know when a call is received and a built-in microphone allows the mouse also to be picked up in its open position and be used as a normal phone.

“Finding space for everything on your desk can be difficult, which is why combining peripherals is always popular with users. The simplicity of the mouse and its clamshell design makes it perfect for use both as a mouse and a phone, without compromising the functionality of either,” comments Stephen Fawcett, Senior Product Manager of LINDY Electronics.

Compatible with Skype, MSN, Yahoo Messenger and other VoIP applications, the LINDY USB Optical Mouse with Built-in VoIP phone can be used to make calls between PCs or from a PC to a landline or mobile phone.

Notes to editors:

The LINDY USB Optical Mouse with Built-in VoIP phone (part no 20580) is available now from RRP £29.99
