IPEVO Offers CES Attendees Free Skype Calls, Adds Wi-Fi Capability to Its SOLO Desktop Internet Phone

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - January 8, 2008) - IPEVO, a leading manufacturer of experience-driven Internet devices and a Skype partner, announced that they are providing free Skype™ internet calls to attendees at 2008 International CES. At the IPEVO booth (South 1 #20613), visitors can call anywhere in the world for free from six calling stations using IPEVO's award-winning SOLO desktop internet phone for superb voice quality. All CES attendees are welcome to take advantage of this opportunity to place calls to other Skype users or SkypeOut™ calls to traditional landline or mobile phone numbers. An existing Skype account is not required.

An always-on device, SOLO lets users place Skype calls without a computer. Equipped with an RJ-45 Ethernet connector, SOLO works wherever a broadband Internet connection is available. In addition, the new Wi-Fi Dongle unveiled at CES brings wireless capability to the device, enabling both home and office users to choose the best spot for their Skype calls, as they no longer need a wired connection to a router.

"CES attendees can experience first-hand just how easy it is to place Skype calls with SOLO. Forget about powering up your computer or plugging a handset into a router to place an Internet call," said Edward Lucero, VP & general manager of IPEVO North America. "We invite anyone to stop-by the IPEVO booth, whether they want to check out the sound quality or just talk to an old friend overseas -- it's on us!"

Access to a broadband Internet connection is required for Skype. Please note, just as with Skype running on a computer, Skype embedded in a desktop internet phone or other handset is not a replacement for your traditional telephone service and cannot be used for emergency calling.


IPEVO will be offering free calling, as well as introducing several exciting products, at 2008 International CES in Las Vegas from January 7-10. Stop by IPEVO's booth (South 1 #20613) to view their latest products or to make a free Skype call anywhere in the world for free from six calling stations using IPEVO's award-winning SOLO desktop internet phone for superb voice quality.
