Asus videophone for Skype hits the UK

Skype has worked with Asus to create its first dedicated Skype videophone available now for pre-order in the UK.

The first dedicated Skype videophone, the Asus EEE Videophone, is now available to buy in the UK.

The battery-powered device was announced by Asus at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this year and will cost around 220.

Manrique Brenes, Skype's director of business development and product management for consumer electronics, said: "The Eee Videophone is Skype's first foray with a partner into the videophone category."

"The videophone offers the benefits of video calling to a much wider audience, allowing friends and families to share their worlds face-to-face without being tied to a computer."

The videophone can be pre-ordered from either Amazon or the Skype shop from today.
