Three's the Magic Number With IPEVO's TRIO Skype Phone

Newly Launched TRIO Combines Speakerphone, Conference Phone, and Personal Handset in a Single Device

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - December 4, 2007) - It's a speakerphone, conference phone, and personal handset all rolled into one. IPEVO, Skype partner and leading manufacturer of experience-driven Internet devices, today introduced TRIO, a three-in-one Skype phone, to the US market. The versatile TRIO gives users the ultimate hands-free Skype experience, and lets them instantly switch to a private conversation at the press of a button.

"TRIO is a great addition to our line of award-winning Skype hardware," said Edward Lucero VP & general manager of IPEVO North America. "Its design reflects a careful consideration to real-world ergonomic needs and user behaviors. So whether it is used as a conference phone or private handset, TRIO fits in perfectly with user's workspaces and work styles."

Equally at home for business or personal use, TRIO can be used in an upright stance as a personal speakerphone for hands-free calling, flat on a desktop for group conferencing, or held in handset mode for private conversations. Users can toggle between speaker and handset modes on the fly without interruption.

Light and compact, TRIO is an ideal conferencing solution for the frequent traveler. Teams can set up a group conference in the hotel room, remote meeting site, or wherever they can find a broadband connection. Built-in recording software turns TRIO into a high quality voice recorder and saves a call to the computer as a WAV file.

"The ultra versatile design is an exceptional gadget for business travelers on the go," said Howard Chang, project manager of Amperor Direct. "While I'm on business trips, the TRIO is a must have device for me to place Skype calls."

Leveraging IPEVO's longstanding experience in voice technology, TRIO delivers exceptional voice quality, suppressing surrounding noise and interference. The device's unique hollow mouthpiece design minimizes the annoying echo effect -- a common complaint among some Skype users. As a result, the device offers a high quality solution for placing inexpensive business calls through Skype.

Already launched in Taiwan, TRIO's versatility and sleek design has made it a clear favorite for Skype service among businesses. "I would go as far as claiming that TRIO is clearly the best Skype handset I have ever come across," said Anthony Cheung, Chief Scientific Officer of enGene Inc. "The handsfree conference phone function of TRIO allows me to multitask efficiently
