IPEVO's TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone Awarded "Best of the Month" by Everything USB

"TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone accomplishes its primary purpose - replacing a standard telephone - very well"

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - March 11, 2008) - IPEVO, a leading manufacturer of experience-driven Internet devices, today announced that TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone, a versatile, three-in-one Skype phone, has been honored with "Best of the Month" for February 2008 by Everything USB. As its name implies, TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone combines a speakerphone, conference phone, and personal handset into a compact, travel-friendly design. The complete review by Contributing Editor, Eric Hanson, can be found at http://www.everythingusb.com/ipevo-trio-usb-speakerphone-14263.html.

TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone 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. A simple toggle switch configures the phone for personal or speakerphone. Designed and engineered exclusively for Skype, TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone delivers exceptional sound quality through full duplex technology with 16-bit DSP. Its unique "hollow" mouthpiece design minimizes the annoying "echo" effect commonly associated with Skype calls.

Everything USB's review praised TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone's voice quality: "The TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone's biggest strength is its sound quality as a phone. I tested the TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone's phone abilities in both hand-held and conference call modes with my wife, and found that on the TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone's end, sound reproduction was as clear and balanced as any other modern telephone, especially in hand-held mode... On the other end of the call, my wife found similar results, noting that the TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone sounded exactly like a real telephone," wrote Hanson.

TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone offers one-touch recording, with built-in recording software that automatically saves Skype conversations to a computer as a WAV file. Hanson highlighted this feature in his review, "It's a pretty neat idea, especially if you conduct a lot of interviews -- something IPEVO cleverly helps facilitate by adding a feature that by default warns the person on the other end of the line that you're about to start recording -- and has a nice seamless integration into the phone through the record and stop buttons, which have the instantaneous effect you'd expect from a digital recorder."

"We're pleased that TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone was recognized by Everything USB for February," said Ed Lucero, VP & general manager of IPEVO North America. " TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone's versatility has made it a clear favorite for Skype service among business users, particularly frequent travelers. The hands-free conference phone function enables users to multi-task efficiently, and business teams can set up a group conference in a hotel room or remote site. And as Everything USB noted, TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone ensures that business users can benefit from Skype's low cost and flexible services, without sacrificing call quality."

TR-10 Portable VoIP Conference Phone, along with other IPEVO products, is available for purchase at the IPEVO online store. Select products can also be found at a growing number of online and brick and mortar retailers, including Fry's Electronics, Amazon.com, and Amperor Direct.
