Miglia's Dialog Phone
Miglia today announced the release of the Dialog Phone, a wire-free phone that offers Skype and iChat AV integration: "Dialog Phone takes internet telephony on your Mac to the next level thanks to its fully featured software application. The wire-free aspect of the phone finally breaks free of all USB cables to complete the true 'telephone experience,'" the company said. "Dialog does away with traditional and redundant gimmicks, such as unnecessary LCD screens and number buttons. The beauty of Dialog is that it leverages all the advantages of your computer to take phone communication to the next level." Dialog features a call button and a volume control key, which can also be used to scroll through the list of contacts. The $80 device requires Mac OS X 10.4 and a USB 2.0 port (and a G4/G5- or Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.4).
