Buffalo USB Phone for Skype

Buffalo introduces their VH-MU01 USB phone for Skype and MSN chat so you can drop those headsets if you have a complex.  The Buffalo USB phone looks like a slim design with easy button navigation.  Any asstute reader will quickly realize there is no LCD or display for the phone.  Well, if you’re looking to get into USB phones for home or work, don’t let the lack of display worry you.

These phones are designed to work with software like Skype where the software on your computer provides the visual display you need.  So as you click the touch pad of the USB phone the action shows up on your Skype software. This type of USB phone makes using on-line VoIP more like the traditional phone.  However, if you just can’t part with the land-line setup than you should consider the MagicJack phone.  The MagicJack is a USB dongle which connects to your computer and on the other end of the dongle is a traditional phone connection.  Simply connect your good’ol phone to the dongle and you’re talking over VoIP. What I do like about the Buffalo USB phone and Skype combination is the portablility of it all.  With free unlimited US/Canada and Mexico calls and [extremely] low international rates [about 0.02 per minute] the VoIP option is ideal for home, office or on the road. Buffalo didn’t mention cost, but I doubt the VH-MU01 will be over $20. Source:  Akihabara News.
