Logitech has unveiled three new audio products all priced under $100 that promise to make calling friends and family over the Internet easier; The Logitech QuickCall USB Speakerphone, the Logitech Cordless Internet Handset and the Logitech Cordless Headset for PC and Mobile Phones.
"Three main components define the experience of any phone call: the network, the service, and the phone or device that delivers the calls", said Gina Clark, vice president of product marketing for Internet Communications.
The Logitech QuickCall USB Speakerphone for Internet Calling offers users a two-microphone array - one on each side of the wing-shaped phone - that can capture voices and sounds from a wider area in a room.
The QuickCall speakerphone also includes Logitech's RightSound technology, which supposedly eliminates echoes caused by a speaker and microphone in close proximity, while the option to plug a headset into the unit is still present for when you need privacy.
The Logitech QuickCall USB Speakerphone will be available in the US in October and in Europe beginning in December. Its suggested retail price in the US is $99.99 and in the UK £69.99.
The Logitech Cordless Internet Handset is a Skype based internet telephone that works up to 164 feet/50 meters from the PC.
The Skype Certified handset supports the key Skype calling functions, including Skype to Skype calling, SkypeOut, SkypeIn, call forwarding to mobile and landline phones or to another Skype user name, and conference calling. A colour LCD displays available Skype contacts, offers access to Skype voicemail, and enables people to check incoming and outgoing call logs.
The Logitech Cordless Internet Handset will be available in the US and in Europe beginning in October. Its suggested retail price in the US is also $99.99 and in the UK £69.99.
Finally the company has announced the Logitech Cordless Headset for PC and Mobile Phones. The headset comes with a USB wireless receiver that plugs into a desktop PC or laptop and offers an instant connection with the headset. The headset can also be connected directly to any mobile phone with Bluetooth.
