LOGITECH CORDLESS SKYPE INTERNET HANDSET INTRODUCTION
For those who make a lot of phone calls, especially international calls, getting the bill can be quite a shock whether using a landline or a cell phone. An alternative to those costly bills would be to install Skype and use a PC to make free calls to other PC's (or calls to landlines and cell phones for a fee). The only requirements are a computer with broadband internet access and a headset with a microphone, making the service accessible to almost anyone. Since its launch in 2003, Skype has experienced rapid growth and popularity which spawned an increase in third party accessories like the Logitech Cordless Internet Handset that I'll be reviewing today. With a range of up to 50 meters indoors and 10 hours of talk time, one can enjoy all the conveniences of Skype without being tied to the PC. Let's check it out.
LOGITECH CORPORATE PROFILE
Focused on innovation and quality, Logitech designs personal peripherals to help people enjoy a better experience with the digital world. We started in 1981 with mice, which (new at the time) provided a more intuitive way of interacting with a personal computer. We became the worldwide leader in computer mice, and have reinvented the mouse in dozens of ways to match the evolving needs of PC and laptop users.
Since those early days, we have expanded our expertise in product design beyond the computer mouse, with a broad portfolio of interface devices that are the “last inch” between you and your computer or your console game, digital music or home-entertainment system.
With products sold in almost every country in the world, Logitech's leadership in innovation now encompasses a wide variety of personal peripherals (both cordless and corded), with special emphasis on products for PC navigation, gaming, Internet communications, digital music and home-entertainment control.
For each of our product categories, we study how our customers use their digital devices, and then our designers and engineers set their sights on how we can create a better experience with those devices – richer, more comfortable, more fun, more productive, more convenient, and more delightful.
