Conference calling on PSTN is so pre-tech-burst, and Buffalo
's making quite sure you're well aware of a VoIP alternative
to dialing into those oft held (and frequently toned out) corporate calls
. The BSKP-CU202/SV speakerphone
boasts a unique, if not awkward design, boasts about its Skype support, and packs six total watts of power to belt out those brutal demands coming from the other end. Reportedly, no drivers are required for this gizmo to work, and it draws all the current it needs to operate from your PC's USB port. Users should also enjoy the echo cancellation technology that's built right in, and just in case you need to swap over to a private conversation, an integrated headphone jack is handily included on the rear. Look for this to hit corporate cubes in Japan soon for a modest ¥9,800 ($82), and feel free to click on through for a few more snaps.
