Skype Hardware Phone

Polycom launches Skype speakerphone: I could see this going over huge.

Communicator speakerphone is designed for individual use. It connects to a PC via a USB cable. Pressing a button on the $129.99 gadget launches Skype on the computer, where the call is set up.

I had a conference call to Norway the other day with the good folks at eZ systems, and except for a bit of lag, it was indistinguishable from the telephone.
