The CyberPhone K by Turbolinux is a USB handset specially developed for Linux drivers. It is the first handset in the world of its kind that takes advantage of free peer-to-peer Internet Protocol (IP) voice calls using Skype software and services.
Being highly sophisticated, the CyberPhone K is connected to a Skype-installed PC via a USB port. Sound quality is improved when the handset is in use, and making calls had never been easier for Skype users with the dial key sequence provided. Although meant for Windows users in the first place, the rapid proliferation of Skype users made it viable for Turbolinux to develop the Linux driver by taking advantage of its know-how as a Linux distributor.
