Macally has launched a new version of its IceCam webcam.

The IceCam 2 is a webcam with a built-in microphone. It costs £19 at AM Micro and works with both PCs and Macs. It has a stand so it can be placed on a desk or other convenient surface or it can be clipped on to the top edge of a laptop screen.

The IceCam is able to capture 640x480 VGA resolution images, while its plug and play nature means users can start videochatting almost as soon as they plugged it in to an available USB port.

The Macally IceCam 2 is designed for voice and video chat using Skype, iChat, Yahoo Messenger and other instant messaging clients. It works with Windows XP SP2 and Vista and can also be used with Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later.
