Logitech has teamed-up with Skype to announce the Logitech EasyCall Desktop set that integrates standard user interface combinations with equipment to make Skype calls.

The European version of the product combines a mouse, headset and speakerphone with a Skype-specific keyboard for the first time. The keyboard includes one-touch buttons for launching Skype software, placing a call, ending a call, changing the user's online status, and dialling a mobile or traditional phone. The F9 to F12 keys act as programmable speed-dial buttons.

The two companies plan jointly to market the European version of the Logitech EasyCall Desktop, which will be available across Europe beginning in mid-September at €129.99.
