Lindy Electronics has announced its USB optical mouse with built-in VoIP phone.

Flip it open, and a keypad and LCD display are revealed, turning the optical mouse into a VoIP phone.

Not as pretty as say, Sony's offering, it looks quite tidy none the less and comes complete with speaker phone functionality and a headset for hands free use, the mouse is still fully functional even when a phone call is taking place.

The integrated speaker delivers a ringtone to let the user know when a call is received and a built-in microphone allows the mouse also to be picked up in its open position and be used as a normal phone.

Compatible with Skype, MSN, Yahoo Messenger and other VoIP applications, the LINDY USB optical mouse with built-in VoIP phone (part no 20580) is available now from for £29.99.
