Ipevo TR-10 Portable VoiP Conference Phone
For many business travelers, Skype has become an indispensable part of how they communicate. Ipevo’s stylish portable conference phone, which is optimized for Skype, is one of the most useful items I’ve come across recently for the business traveler. It works both as a speakerphone and handset (slide the switch to change modes) for Skype and is compatible with Mac and Windows personal computers. Voice quality (for both sides) is excellent (note that this is dependent on the quality of the Skype connection as well).
With a weight of five ounces, it’s easy to carry along on trips and it plugs directly into your computer’s USB port – no external power supply is required.
The TR-10 also features built-in recording software that allows you to store Skype meetings on your personal computer (n.b. laws regarding the recording of conversations vary; many states in the U.S. require all parties to be aware that they are being recorded).
