Asus have just released an upgrade of the Skype video phone the Asus SV1T. I’ve used one of first generation for nearly a year and a touchscreen was very much needed as you always find yourself trying to navigate via this anyway.
The Asus SV1T is equipped with pretty much the same spec as the original with a 7-inch 800 x 480 screen Skype-to-Skype support along with SkypeOut and SkypeIn.
You can either connect the device via Wifi or network cable a VGA-resolution webcam and integrated speaker/microphone jacks for plugging in external versions. The screen now has the touchscreen layer which will very much improve this device and make it much easier to enter setup details.
The ASUS Videophone Touch AiGuru SV1T’s simple-to-use, icon-based touchscreen interface takes the complexity out of Internet calling—making it easy for anyone to make and receive Skype-to-Skype video and voice calls. Users can even participate in conference calls, making the ASUS Videophone Touch AiGuru SV1T an inexpensive, all-in-one voice and video conferencing solution for small businesses. Furthermore, the ASUS Videophone Touch AiGuru SV1T allows users to make calls to fixed and mobile lines at really cheap rates; users can also receive calls from any land or mobile phone line if they have an online Skype number.
I hope they have also changed the keyboard to a qwerty layout rather than alphabetic which I found very annoying.. Check out our original review of the first generation devive last December The Asus SV1
