All I want for Christmas is... I don't know yet. One thing I really want is a wireless solution for Skype. Being chained to the computer with a wired headset isn't working for me anymore (and I usually get distracted and start browsing the net while I'm talking to people). So I've narrowed it down to two choices: the Cordless DUALphone or a Bluetooth headset and dongle. Both solutions run about a hundred Euros, so please help me decide which way to go. For starters, here are my pros and cons: DUALphone: + Able to fully control Skype from handset (online status, contacts) + Phone rings + Familiar phone design - Skype-only - Only useful at home - Not handsfree
Bluetooth: + Can use headset for other bluetooth devices (phone, laptop) + Can work with non-Skype VoIP apps - Ring comes from computer audio (Skype can be set to ring PC speaker) - Still need to use computer to interact with Skype - Headaches setting up Bluetooth headset under Windows XP SP2
It's pretty even, but I'm leaning towards the Bluetooth headset, even though the Cordless DUALphone is pretty cool. Your thoughts?
