VoSKY Introduces Industry's First Skype Certified Multimedia Touchscreen Videophone

Simple-to-Use Device Enriches Long Distance Conversations Between Family and Friends With Free Face-to-Face Skype Video Calls

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - November 22, 2010) - VoSKY, a leading developer of innovative Skype™-enabled solutions, has announced the launch of the VoSKY Multimedia Touchscreen Videophone, the industry's first Skype Certified™ multi-functional videophone that combines multimedia capabilities including: music player, video player and digital photo frame. This affordable videophone with built-in webcam, speaker and large 7" LCD color touchscreen is optimized for free Skype-to-Skype video and voice calls.

The VoSKY Multimedia Touchscreen Videophone is an always-on device that is ready for incoming or outgoing free Skype-to-Skype video and voice calls at anytime. When users are not on a Skype call, they are able to listen to SHOUTcast™ Radio or view photos, local news, weather, sports scores and more through FrameChannel. In addition, users can listen to their MP3 music and watch video clips.

"Long distance conversations can be greatly enriched with video," said Dean Chang, CEO at VoSKY. "The ability to see your family and friends face-to-face on a free Skype video call adds a new dimension to staying connected and keeping in touch. Skype's ubiquity, along with its superior voice and video quality, has made it a leading choice for Internet video calls. We are delighted to launch a plug-and-play device that makes it really easy for everyone in the family -- from children to grandparents -- to enjoy Skype video calling."

Because the VoSKY Multimedia Touchscreen Videophone is a stand-alone device that does not require a PC, there is no need to download any software or configure any hardware like a webcam, microphone or speaker. Setting up the device for Skype video calling can be accomplished in 3 easy steps.

1. Plug in the device and connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet
2. Touch through the intuitive step-by-step Wizard for easy setup
3. Sign in with an existing Skype account or create a new one and make a call

Besides free Skype-to-Skype video and voice calls, consumers will also be able to use the VoSKY Multimedia Touchscreen Videophone to make calls to mobile and landline numbers at Skype's low global calling rates or by purchasing an inexpensive Skype subscription plan. In addition a Skype Online number can be purchased separately to enable people to receive inbound calls on the VoSKY Multimedia Touchscreen Videophone from landline or mobile phones.

The VoSKY Multimedia Touchscreen Videophone is available for consumers to purchase online from the Skype Shop at or from retailers and e-tailers in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America.
