Hawking Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of innovative wired and wireless networking solutions for home, workgroup, and corporate users, unveiled today its plans to begin shipping the Net-Talk Internet USB Phone. The new Internet Phone is the first of an entire line of VoIP (Voice Over IP) products from Hawking that allow users to make private calls online from a handset, forgoing the need to speak and listen from an external microphone and speaker set.

The HNT1 works by interfacing with Skype, the most popular VoIP software (150,529,055 downloads as of 8/18/2005) for making free calls over the Internet. The included Net-Talk software allows the Internet Phone to control Skypes most commonly used functions, eliminating the need to access the program with a computer. As long as the HNT1 is connected to a computer with a USB cable, the Net-Talk Internet Phone can remotely control Skype.

The Hawking Net-Talk Internet USB Phone is designed to be a versatile and robust solution for making calls on the go. Besides Skype support, the phone is fully compatible with most messaging software clients with voice capabilities. A few of these include AOLs Instant Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, and MSN Messenger. The HNT1 doubles as a microphone and speaker unit for playback and recording of audio content and also has auxiliary jacks for plugging in audio accessories. The HNT1 comes with advanced features including a backlit LCD display, volume and mute control, echo-cancellation, and 4 user-selectable ringtones.

?The Net-Talk Internet Phone allows users to make calls like you would on a cell phone regardless of your location. With wireless Hot-Spots steadily increasing around the globe, a Net-Talk Internet Phone equipped user can place VoIP based calls from airports, coffee shops or school campuses without worrying about roaming charges or long distance fees. The problem with using Skype with a standard PC microphone and speaker set is that you lose the ability to communicate privately and the sound quality is not as clear because of echoing effects. The HNT1 eliminates these problems, says Jason Owen Chief Marketing Manager at Hawking.

The Hawking Net-Talk Internet USB Phone installs easily onto any desktop or laptop computer with a broadband or wireless access to the Internet. Just plug-and-play the unit into a USB port, install the Net-Talk software, and the Hawking Internet Phone is ready to go.

Pricing and Availability
The HNT1 Net-Talk Internet USB Phone is expected to be available September 10th, 2005 via retailers, direct marketers, e-commerce sites, and distribution channels at an (ESP) Estimated Street Price of $59.
