Biscotti Launches a Video Phone for your TV

Posted Thu Nov 17, 2011 at 07:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

It's an interesting idea but it's not cheap and it lacks Skype support.

Biscotti is a company new to the scene and they've just launched their first product - the TV Phone. It's essentially a video phone type device that turns your TV into the monitor.

To use it, simply set up the camera/microphone combo on the top of your TV and then call up whoever you want using the included remote. It's a nice concept, but for a $199 device it lacks one big feature that seems like a no-brainer.

Biscotti can call anyone on a smartphone, tablet, Google contact or other Biscotti users. What it can't do is access Skype, which is becoming a commonplace application on connected TVs.
