TRENDnet sends out USB phone adapter for Skype

updated 10:25 am EST, Tue January 23, 2007

TRENDnet Skype Adapter

TRENDnet this morning released its ClearLink VoIP USB Phone Adapter as a simple bridge for owners who want to use their analog phones with Skype. Attaching through USB, the adapter transforms any existing phone into a VoIP phone while leaving open the option of reverting back to traditional phone line service; a second RJ-11 jack and a switch quickly convert the phone between analog and VoIP modes when a local call is necessary. The device is completely powered through the USB bus, TRENDnet says. Pricing and availability have not been announced, though the company says its VoIP adapter should retail for less than a dedicated handset.

    Cool.

    "Compliant with Windows 2000/XP". I guess OSX and Vista users are screwed.

    network issues

    Unless Skype steps up to the plate and makes its system more robust so that it can handle the 4 to 8 million users that seem to regularly be on it, I don't see the point of more gear to use their services. The slickest cams and phones in the world won't help you if the network isn't passing your data properly.
