Ready for a Skype Flash phone?

A post on Skype Journal entitled USB Flash Phone for Skype fired up my interest this morning.

In the post, Stuart Henshall introduced the product as a USB stick complete with mini-headset.

I then went to the Flash Phone F1K information page on MPLAT.com. Based in Toronto, Canada and Shanghai, China, MPLAT makes all sorts of neat solutions and gear for VoIP and cell use.

So here's what I found out:

This $46.90, USB 2.0-compliant device works thus. You put Skype on a flash card, and install it into the phone's flash driver.

Then when you are on the go or just at your desk, you can make or receive your Skype call via the Flash Phone.

No PC required. Also, since the Flash Phone comes with 32-bit DSP (Digital Signal Processing) audio enhancement, microphone and speakers, stands to reason you'll get more robust and flexible sound quality than if you were to load Skype on your handset.

In his post, Stu asked readers if they've tried Flash Phone. I'm doing the same thing with you folks. Have you tried, or would you be willing to try, a set-up like this? Post a TalkBack and let us know.
