If you do a lot of video calls across the Web, you'll be aware that they can be a bit of a pain sometimes. Between lossy connections and flaky webcam drivers, it can be a little tough to get things working how you want them to.

Asus is trying to simplify that process with its Eee Videophone, which also seems to go by the name of the AiGuru SV1T Skype Videophone. It has a 7-inch touchscreen interface and lets you use Skype to make unlimited free video calls to other Skype users. You can also make voice calls if you buy Skype credit.

The Videophone is available now, and costs £240.
