ThinkGeek USB Skype Phone
ThinkGeek has begun carrying the single-purposed USB Skype Phone in its online store. The handset is designed with the sole function of interfacing with Skype on a PC to streamline the process of making VoIP calls, the company says, but includes multiple features that other devices lack such as support for custom ringtones, noise-canceling microphone hardware, and a bottom-half design that allows the USB cord to move freely during a call. The LCD display is capable of displaying both immediate call information as well as the contact list and the previous call history. ThinkGeek is shipping its phone now for $25.
