Press Release Summary: Leading German Computer Magazine says SOLO does what the competition only promises
Press Release Body: San Jose, Calif., October 23, 2007 - IPEVO, Skype partner and leading manufacturer of experience-driven Internet devices, today announced that SOLO, its newly-launched, stand-alone Skype phone, was awarded with a perfect five-star rating in the October issue of CHIP magazine. With a readership reaching 1.5 million, CHIP is one of the leading computer magazines in Germany.
The stand-alone SOLO gives users the freedom to place and receive Skype calls without a computer - bringing the familiarity and ease of use of a traditional telephone to Skype's popular Voice over IP service. The Skype-certified SOLO is equipped with an RJ-45 Ethernet connector and works wherever a broadband Internet connection is available. SOLO features a sleek black body with a black or white handset, along with an easy-to-read 2.4" TFT color LCD display.
