Chwang Yi Company has announced the availability of the USBPhone, the first USB phone handset for Skype users to include full-featured control application software for Mac OS X systems.
While the USBPhone works perfectly with either Mac OS X or Win XP systems, the key value it offers today is to users of Mac OS X, because of the Mac OS X USBPhone control application that is included. Until now, doing things such as adjusting ringtones, assigning keypad buttons, setting number presets and so forth have not been possible for these Mac users, according to Chwang Yi Company. Now they are – with this new phone and software.
The USBPhone works with any Mac or PC running OS X 10.3 or higher, or Win XP. The USBPhone includes a CD with the Win XP software. The Mac OS X software is a fre download form the Chwang Yi web site.
