Yamaha intros two USB speakers for Skype

Yamaha on Friday announced the upcoming release of its SoundGadget SoundGadget PSG-01S and Projectphone PJP-25URS speakerphones that are certified to work with Skype calls. Besides providing a microphone, the two are entirely USB powered and don't need drivers. The PSG-01S is meant as a personal speaker, while the larger PJP-25URS is meant to cater to small conference rooms where more than one individual is at one end of the conversation.

Both feature echo cancellation and noise reduction, while the dedicated Skype control buttons can activated on Windows PCs once the included software is installed. The PSG-01S has an automatic sensor that detects the horizontal or vertical position and switches to either a Skype-ready speakerphone or to a stereo speaker mode for music playback when horizontal.

The PSG-01S should be out sometime in September, while the PJP-25URS is due for a November launch. Prices have not been announced.
