Next Generation Handset Enhances Online Voice Communications

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - IPEVO, a designer of devices that enhance the Internet experience, today announced the launch of its ST4RT Universal Handset to provide consumers with a compact and easy to use handset for Internet voice applications.

The IPEVO ST4RT Universal Handset features a slim design and natural ergonomic form to offer a unique alternative to uncomfortable ear buds and headsets. Engineered specifically for use with VoIP services, the handset features a distinctive opening at the mouthpiece to eliminate 'echo' effects and ensure exceptional sound quality. Teamed with a lightweight and clutter-free cable management system, this device is an ideal telephony solution for consumers with on-the-go lifestyles.

"As we continued to see advances in Internet communications, we saw a need for a product that could provide early adopters with the technology they are looking for," said Royce Hong, CEO of IPEVO. "We designed the ST4RT with teenagers, young adults and other busy consumers in mind who need to have an affordable alternative to traditional phone setups on the market today. They now have access to a quality, compact and portable phone that meets the demands of next-generation IP voice applications."

The IPEVO ST4RT Universal Handset is plug-and-play, PC and Mac compatible and supports most VoIP softphone and voice-enabled Internet chat programs, including Windows Live Messenger, AOL AIM®, Skype and Yahoo! Voice. The integrated LED indicator informs users of current call status, such as ongoing calls, a muted line or offline setting. The handset is available immediately at the IPEVO online store for $14.99 for one, or $24.99 for two.
