 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  May 27, 2007

Sony Japan recently released a new USB mouse with a unique twist. Simply pick up the mouse from your desktop, and it flips open to become a Skype telephone handset.

Sony VN-CX1a Mouse

The Sony VN-CX1A telephone mouse is a fully-functional optical mouse which works with all Windows PCs. Pick it up, and open it and it transforms into a VOIP phone for use with Skype. When propped open on the desktop, it becomes a speaker phone. The mouse comes in black, silver and blue colors which match most of Sony’s VAIO PCs.

It’s available now from Sony Style Japan for ¥7980 (appx. $65 USD.) No release date has been announced for other countries.
