Tango video phone adapter

8x8 has started shipping the Tango Video Terminal Adapter, meant to complement its VoIP phone services. The difference with the Tango is that users can plug it into a standard home phone, enabling video calls using the existing hardware's keypad and audio equipment. The secret is that the Tango also connects to an Ethernet port, through which it streams H.264 compressed video. Users can also make voice-only Internet calls. The Tango's camera is a 0.25-megapixel model that swivels 180 degrees, and displays its images on a five-inch LCD, through which users can also access a graphical interface with phonebook and settings menus. 8x8 is selling the adapter for $250 along with a $25 monthly phone plan.
