Do You Skype?

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Do you have Verizon Wireless? Do you Skype? Well, if Verizon is you wireless provider, you may be able to take advantage of free mobile to mobile Skype-ing. Sometime in March, Verizon is launching unlimited Skype-to-Skype calls on nine of their smartphones with accompanying 3G plans. One drawback, you can’t “Skype call” regular lines to save money.

Will you switch to Verizon to Skype at a reduced rate?

Abt sells Verizon wireless phones and smartphones. For more information on Skype or Verizon wireless, call or stop in today.

Missing You Might Be Easier With ASUS

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

Although I’ve never sent a kid to college, I imagine that it’s a daunting task. Missing that child has got to be unbearable. Or, what if a loved one has to move, or even travel a lot? Connecting with that person face-to-face would be a great comfort. ASUS Videophone for Skype might just be an answer to the question, how can I make missing my friends and family easier, when they are so far away?

Not everyone can afford a laptop or computer with a webcam. Sometimes they aren’t portable enough. ASUS has reintroduced a 10”, 3.5 pound videophone for Skype that is portable enough to bring just about anywhere. This videophone can be used to make Skype-to-Skype calls, calls to landlines, and calls to cell phones. Even if you are not currently a Skype user, it’s free and easy to sign up for an account.

The ASUS is impressive for such a futuristic device. Once the initial set-up is complete, it’s pretty much dial and you’re good to go. After reading reviews on the videophone, most users have noted that it is far easier to use than a webcam—making it a great gift idea for grandparents and grandchildren too. Abt Electronics is a proud retailer for the ASUS Videophone for Skype.

Portability is a benefit of the ASUS Videophone compared to that of computer webcams. Resolution of the screen is 800 x 480 Pixel, on a 7” touch screen. It also boasts a great frame rate. The videophone can easily be packed or locked in a hotel safe. Take the ASUS with you for a video chat of up to 20 minutes, or talk as long as you want when it’s in the hinged base.
