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.

According to CHIP's review, "IPEVO SOLO holds what the competition only promises.
Other so-called Skype telephones are not much more than headsets. SOLO is like a
standard telephone with all the built-in functions such as re-dialing and
loudspeaker.The handling hardly differs from the standard model."

"We're honored that SOLO has received top marks from CHIP - the magazine of choice
for the German technophile. CHIP's readers are looking for the latest technology
products that improve their lives and deliver unwavering performance and
reliability; and we're committed to giving them smart solutions that fit seamlessly

placing a Skype call-easy as placing a regular phone call."
