Logitech offers Skype calling kit

Including bespoke keyboard

Skype and Logitech have joined up to announce the Logitech EasyCall Desktop set, which integrates standard user interface combinations with equipment to make Skype calls.

The European version of the product combines a mouse, headset and speakerphone with a Skype-specific keyboard for the first time. The keyboard includes one-touch buttons for launching Skype software, placing a call, ending a call, changing the user's online status, and dialling a mobile or traditional phone. The F9 to F12 keys act as programmable speed-dial buttons.

The two companies plan to jointly market the European version of the Logitech EasyCall Desktop, which will be available across Europe beginning in mid-September at €130 (about £88).
