Trendnet ClearSky Bluetooth VoIP Kit: The Pitch And Product

Trendnet ClearSky BlueTooth VoIP Kit (TVP-SP1BK)
Summary Small, boxy wireless handset plus USB Bluetooth receiver.
Update None
Pros • Easy to install and use
• Good Skype integration with software
Cons • Poor mobility support: no headset included, no belt clip
• Sometimes spotty sound quality; subject to interference
• Limited functionality handset

If you have a broadband Internet link, a desire for VoIP communications, and a need to move around rather than stay rooted at your desk, a wireless VoIP handset seems like a natural fit. But not all wireless handsets are created equal, as we learned when using the Trendnet ClearSky device.

This product bundle consists two devices. The first is a small, light and boxy little metallic blue handset; its dimensions are 5.6" x 1.78" x 0.9" (143.5 x 45 x 22 mm) and it weighs 3.5 oz (100 g). The second is a Bluetooth USB dongle that looks very much like a flash drive. Both are illustrated in Figure 5.

One nice thing about the dongle's design is that it includes a built-in cover that rotates around to protect the business end of the device. Like the best of the flash drives it resembles, this device makes the cover an integral part of the package, rather than providing a cap or cover that can be too easily lost when it's removed. Figure 6 shows the dongle folded up, with the cover doing its intended job.
