ASUS AiGuru SV1T and HP-100U

ASUS has finished the week by adding a pair of communications devices to its lineup, including one of its first headphone combos tailored to the Mac. The HP-100U combines an over-ear headphone set, a desk array microphone and a Xonar U1 that gives Mac users OpenAL audio acceleration as well as Dolby Home Theater processing. The Xonar hub also provides a headphone amp and in Windows provides a boost to DirectSound, EAX and OpenAL.

The AiGuru SV1T is an upgrade to the earlier SV1 that adds touch input to the Skype phone's 7-inch screen along with a simplified interface. As before, the VoIP device has a webcam for Skype video chats, uses Wi-Fi for networking and has a battery to operate completely wire free for shorter stints.

Like in most ASUS launches, no details have been given as to the prices or ship dates for either the HP-100U or the SV1T.
