Got HDTV and Wi-Fi? Drop $199 on the Biscotti TV Phone and you’re ready to make free HD video calls from the comfort of your living room sofa—letting your whole family join in on the conversation. With Biscotti, you can chat with other Biscotti users on their HDTVs, or on a PC, tablet or smartphone using Google video and voice.
The Biscotti TV Phone consists of a small box containing a high-definition camera and microphone that sits on top of your TV. Set up is simple. Just plug it into the HDMI slot on your TV, satellite box, or cable box, connect it to your Wi-Fi and you're ready to go. There’s a simple remote that lets you control the onscreen menus without switching inputs.
Biscotti can alert you to an incoming call while you’re watching TV, or even to turn the set on to receive a call. Bonus: set the Biscotti to auto-answer and remotely monitor the room when you’re away.
Biscotti does not support Skype, which will be a drawback for many, and there are no immediate plans to incorporate Skype. But for those without app-enabled TVs, Biscotti will cost about $100 less than purchasing a Skype enabled Blu-ray player and camera.
