Here’s another great little gadget designed to stow away in your laptop’s PCMCIA card slot. The Vo200 from Kensington is a bluetooth enabled wireless phone that lets you make calls on any of the popular VoIP services like Skype, MSN, Yahoo or Google. The phone’s mouthpiece can fold out allowing the Vo200 to be used like a cellphone or it can be flipped all the way around and serve as a stand so it can be placed on a desk and used as a speakerphone instead.
While inside a PCMCIA slot the Vo200 is constantly charging and Kensington claims when removed it has over 3 hours of “serious” talk time and up to 30 hours of standby time. It includes echo cancellation and noise suppression technologies which should help make your conversations sound a bit clearer and even has a blinking LED light that will warn you when you only have about 10% of your talk time left.
The Kensington Vo200 BT VoIP Phone is available on their website for $89.99.
