ASUS Skype Mainboards

ASUS today launched two computer mainboards that the company says will convert any telephone into a VoIP-capable device. Both the M2N/TeleSky for AM2-based Athlon 64 processors and the P5B TeleSky for Intel Core 2 systems share a plug-in telephone adapter that links a home phone with the Skype software of a PC, switching the phone between conventional and Internet calls. The adapter also gives the choice of using a standard phone for Skype-specific functions ranging from SkypeOut calls to real-world numbers as well as multi-user Skype Conference conversations. Owners can even customize the ringtone when receiving calls from different numbers or users, ASUS says. Both the M2N and P2B variants ship today, though pricing remains unavailable.
