Logitech announces "Internet calling desktop" with Skype
Earlier this week, Logitech and Skype [announced](http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/news/FR/EN,contentid=12623,crid=34) the EasyCall™ Desktop, combining a mouse, headset and speakerphone with a Skype-specific keyboard. This is interesting because it’s another “world’s first” for both Logitech and Skype: the first keyboard from a mainstream vendor to include Skype calling buttons. You can place and end calls and change your online status right from the keyboard, and even assign quickdial hotkeys to some function keys so you don’t have to open up the Skype contact list at all to place a call.
It’s going to be available in Europe in mid-September for the price of €129.99, or £89.99.
