Logitech introduced an array of new products on Monday designed for voice-over-IP (VoIP) users, including a keyboard with dedicated call management buttons and a speakerphone. VoIP service provider Skype worked with Logitech to make some of the products exclusive to Skype in Europe. The European version of the new Logitech EasyCall Desktop includes a Skype-specific keyboard with dedicated buttons for launching Skype, making a call, ending a call, changing a user\u2019s online status and speed dialing. The package also includes a mouse and headset as well as a speakerphone, which eliminates echo and has control buttons such as volume, mute, call answer and hang-up. \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nLogitech Cordless HeadsetIn the United States, the package is optimized for use with Yahoo Messenger with Voice and AOL\u2019s instant messenger service. It will sell in the United States\u00a0for US$129.99 and will be available in stores in both the United States\u00a0and Europe in mid-September. The companies did not reveal the suggested retail price for Europe. Logitech also introduced a cordless handset for making and receiving Skype calls. The phone communicates wirelessly to a module that plugs into the USB port on a PC and can be used within 164 feet of the PC. It will start selling in October for $199.99 in the United States\u00a0and Europe. \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nLogitech EasyCallLogitech will also sell a speakerphone, designed for VoIP calling, separate from the EasyCall package.
