A mouse that talks?

September 29, 2006

Sony have released a mouse that combines all the usual mouse features with a VOIP phone. Quite why you’d want to use your mouse as a phone is beyond me!

I can see that it could be very handy, and in portable laptop mice, it just might be justifiable. But your average web user who uses VOIP as well will probably want to carry on using the mouse while talking to the caller.

I use VOIP at home and have a separate handset for it. If I get a call I can then continue browsing/working and chat away quite happily. I would find it really annoying to have to grab my mouse, open it up and put it to my ear and then not be able to work until the call was over!
