Skype phone & Adapter: Home Calling

Skype with its new product has made international calls easier from home phones. The adapter is a small box that plugs into a power outlet. You can connect cables to your Internet router, your phone jack and your home phone. When you make a call, the adapter diverts the call from the external phone line to your internet connection. But this clunky setup prevents you from making impromptu Skype calls. Because your phone isn’t designed to work with Skype, you can’t access your Skype address book directly on the handset, or see who’s online to take your calls. Since home phones don’t have cameras, you won’t be able to make video calls.
Overall it is a useful set up  because those who don’t have a PC can make international calls at cheaper rates. Its market price is  3,080 including VAT.
