First Skype Video Phone

Videophones were first demonstrated to the public at the New York World's Fair in 1964 and Montreal's Expo '67. But, until Packet 8 introduced a video phone a few years ago, they were not readily available.

Once Skype introduced video, you knew someone would have to come up with a Skype-enabled video phone. Coolest Gadgets reports the announcement of a Skype-certified AirGuru SV1 Skype video phone. No additional details are known at this but it's a development we'll follow once launched later this fall.

Just as significant, this is the first new Skype-enabled hardware device partner we have seen in quite some time - certainly since the introduction last fall of the Skypephone and the FREETALK Wireless Stereo Headset.

Hat tip to Andy for pointing out this post while sitting in on the Mobilize sessions.
