ASUS Launches Standalone Videophone

ASUS Launches Standalone Videophone
Today, ASUS announces the launch of its Skype certified, touchscreen videophone which allows for unlimited video calling over the internet. The ASUS Videophone Touch AiGuru SV1T is the first to feature a high-resolution, 7 inch touchscreen which speeds up character input and makes for an easier calling experience. The phone features a built-in webcam, speaker, microphone, and Wi-fi capabilities and allows users to make unlimited free calls to any Skype users without needing a computer.

The touchscreen is icon-based and easy to use, making it simple for anyone to make or receive Skype-to-Skype calls. Simply connect to a broadband connection - either wirelessly or via an Ethernet cable, sign-in with your Skype account and start calling! Calls are free and unlimited. It also allows users to participate in conference calls from anywhere, which is a great solution for small business.

Skype's director of business development and product management for consumer electronics, Manrique Brenes, had this to say about the device, "Skype goes beyond traditional voice calling and brings people closer through rich, real-time video communication. The device's touchscreen makes video calling an even easier and more accessible way for people to communicate. It offers the benefits of Skype video calling and exceptional audio quality—allowing friends, families, and small businesses to share their worlds face-to-face without being tied to a computer."
