AMEX Digital must really hate keys because they’ve launched a new wireless Skype phone and keyboard with Touch Sense keys. Maybe I’m old school, but I like the feedback I get from regular buttons. Don’t get me wrong: the idea of everything being touch sensitive is really neat, but what if you have chubby fingers?
The TSP-VS501 is a dual-mode phone for both Skype and landline use. All you need to do is plug in the base station to your landline and computer via USB and you’re ready to roll. The range is a measly 150 feet or so, but it’s dual-mode and has touch-sensitive keys!
The TSK-VX7 employs the same touch sensitive keys as the Skype phone. Another key feature is the Media Center dedicated buttons that are compatible with both XP and Vista.
