Danger Phone ships
MacMice today began shipping the Danger Phone, its USB VoIP (Voice over IP) handset. The Danger Phone is a USB VoIP telephone handset that works with Skype or any other VoIP application with support for USB handsets, offering plug-and-play compatibility with both Mac OS X and Windows XP systems. The phone is designed as a simple device that is easy to use, emphasizing durability and ruggedness. MacMice sought to do away with gadgetry, a "fake" display, and "flashing lights," leaving only the core functionality of a VoIP phone with a simple interface. The Danger Phone is available for $30.
