New Gadget We Love: Skype Video Phone

Advertisement - Continue Reading Below

While its name (ASUS AiGuru SV1 Internet Videophone) may be unwieldy the device is not. As if the inexpensive (and often free) internet service Skype couldn't get any better - now folks don't even need to be in front of a computer for a video chat.

This is the first dedicated hardware device to allow video calling over the internet with Skype - without the need of a computer. The person you're calling doesn't need to have an identical videophone to receive calls - as long as they are connected to Skype (on a computer or Skype-enabled device), your call will always be free.

$299.95 at Skype.com.
