Talk for Free Dialog Phone
Miglia, known for their digital media products (I'm a fan of their computer speakers) has designed a phone for your computer, Dialog, which offers Skype and iChat AV integration, letting you chat for as long as you want to anyone in the world. Free.
Like all Skype phones, the Dialog takes advantage of your computer to make all your phone calls, and by installing Dialog for PC, you can use almost any Instant Messaging application with voice support, such as MSN Messenger and Yahoo Messenger.
It will look strange to you at first, as there isn't an LED screen or any buttons or numbers, just a call button and a volume control key, which you also use to scroll through your list of contacts. If you're like me, all your phone numbers are stored on your computer. It's wireless too and you can use your phone within a 20-feet of your computer, allowing you to pace during those tense buiness calls
We got the Channel Marketing Director, Charles Kennard, on the phone, who was quite clearly was wandering the office as he talked : "Dialog phone sets it's self apart from other Sykpe phones because of it's huge sense of style and simplicity of use."
Works with both PC and Mac, just plug in the wire free adapter into a USB port on your computer and start yakking.
$79.99 on the Miglia site.
