LAS VEGAS -- D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for consumers and business, and Skype(R), the global Internet communications company, today introduced the D-Link Skype USB phone adapter that allows consumers to use their existing corded or cordless telephone to take advantage of Skype's free calling features.

This latest innovation in Internet calling will be on display during CES 2006 at the D-Link booth, 35832 in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), and at the Skype (eBay) kiosks located inside the LVCC grand lobby entrance adjacent to Starbuck's.

The D-Link Skype USB phone adapter (DPH-50U) lets users accept both regular telephone and Skype calls from the same phone for added flexibility. When consumers are talking on a traditional telephone line and receive an incoming Skype call, they can easily switch lines to take the Skype call or vice versa, just like a typical call-waiting feature.

Conference calls can also be connected between ordinary telephone lines and Skype. For added convenience, the D-Link Skype USB phone adapter includes a lighted display to indicate whether an incoming call is from a traditional telephone or from a Skype user.

"At D-Link, we know that the digital home is all about integration and ease-of-use," said Keith Karlsen, executive vice president, D-Link. "By extending Skype to be accessible through traditional phones, we can make the benefits of Skype even easier to experience."
