LINDY Unveils Optical Mouse with Built-In VoIP Phone
LINDY Electronics has announced the release of its USB Optical Mouse with Built-in VoIP Phone. Boasting speaker phone functionality and a headset for hands free use, the new mouse is fully functional even when a phone call is taking place.
Appearing like any other stylish USB mouse, the new optical mouse turns into a VoIP phone when flipped open, revealing a keypad and LCD display. As the integrated speaker delivers a ringtone, users come to know when a call is received. A built-in microphone allows the mouse also to be picked up in its open position and be used as a normal phone.
Stephen Fawcett, senior product manager of LINDY Electronics said that finding space for everything on a work desk can be difficult, which is why combining peripherals is always popular with users.
"The simplicity of the mouse and its clamshell design makes it perfect for use both as a mouse and a phone, without compromising the functionality of either," said Fawcett in a statement.
The LINDY USB Optical Mouse with Built-in VoIP phone is compatible with Skype (News - Alert), MSN, Yahoo Messenger and other VoIP applications. The device can be used to make calls between PCs or from a PC to a landline or mobile phone.
For over seventy years LINDY has been providing leading-edge technology products from petrol lamps in the 1930s, to the very latest innovative designs in computer connectivity today.
