Asus announce Skype Videophone

September 23rd, 2008 Tags: , ,

Here’s an interesting device from Asus.  The Asus AiGuru SV1 is a dedicated videophone for Skype.  It features a 800 x 600 display, built in mic and speaker (although there are sockets for both to plug in your own), and it can connect directly to the network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.  It doesn’t need a PC to be turned on, and even features a limited battery to allow you to move it around.

It should be available in October, although exact UK pricing is not yet available.

In other Skype news, the Unlimited Europe deal has been expanded again, and now additional covers Moscow and St. Petersburg, and still only costs €3.95+VAT per month.  As well as adding these to the Unlimited World deal, it has been expanded even further to also cover Buenos Aires and Córdoba (Argentina) within the €8.95+VAT per month cost.
