IPEVO Makes Internet Telephony "Second Nature"

Extends Support for Award-Winning Devices to a Broader Range of VoIP Applications -- Giving Consumers a Seamless, Natural IP Experience

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - January 23, 2008) - IPEVO, a leading manufacturer of experience-driven Internet devices, continued to broaden its support for Voice over IP (VoIP) applications and devices that enhance the overall Experience over IP. Targeting TMC's INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO East 2008, held in Miami, Florida from January 23-25, IPEVO ensures that consumers everywhere get the most out of their VoIP services, with a line of award-winning Internet devices for business and consumer applications.

IPEVO plans to continue developing its iconic line of best-selling Skype hardware, while extending its reach into SIP-based VoIP and other Internet Experience products. The company has established a reputation for developing products that seamlessly integrate into users' lifestyles -- winning numerous international design awards and recognitions, including 2006 & 2007 iF Product Design Awards, 2006 Reddot Design Award, 2006 Good Design Award (G-mark). IPEVO's longstanding experience in voice technology delivers exceptional sound quality, suppressing noise and interference to make Internet Telephony crystal clear for both personal and business use.

"IPEVO is making the benefits of VoIP a reality for everyday consumers, and not just the early adopters and technologically savvy. For example, our Desktop Skype Phone makes placing a Skype call as easy and familiar as placing a regular phone call. Users no longer need to power up their computer to place an Internet call," explained Ed Lucero, VP & general manager of IPEVO North America. "The IPEVO philosophy is that smart and careful design takes the complexity out of technology -- essentially making it second nature."

Highlights for ITEXPO include:

- USB handset: The slim and compact design of IPEVO's USB handset has won numerous international design awards and recognitions. The phone delivers exceptional sound quality and seamless integration with Skype software and other VoIP applications.

- Portable speakerphone: A three-in-one device, the portable speakerphone offers exceptional sound quality in both handset and speakerphone modes. The device 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. Light and compact, the portable speakerphone provides business quality conferencing over Skype for business users on the go.

- Desktop Skype phone: This stand-alone phone gives users the freedom to place and receive Skype calls without a computer. The desktop phone is equipped with an RJ-45 Ethernet connector to work wherever a broadband Internet connection is available. It features a sleek black body with a black or white handset, an easy-to-read 2.4" TFT color LCD display, as well as a built-in speakerphone.
