ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Using the Internet to lower phone bills just got easier, thanks to the launch of Auvi’s PHIP65 Dual Mode Cordless Phone. The sleek PHIP65 is the next generation of communication hardware which connects to a traditional landline and the computer, via USB port. This dual functionality gives consumers the freedom to make and receive both standard and / or Internet calls from a single cordless phone.

Auvi IP Skype PhoneDesigned to work with Skype(TM) Internet software, the PHIP65 enables individuals to use their Skype contact list at a push of a button to talk to other Skype users globally for free or make low cost calls through other Skype services(1). In addition, users can use their regular phone service for local calls.

“The VoIP industry is changing the way individuals communicate, yet not everyone is willing to make the full leap into this technology and still rely on their traditional phone service,” said Santosh Patel, CEO and President of Auvi Technologies. “Auvi’s strength is our ability to deliver innovative products that work with today’s emerging technologies and Skype is leading the Internet calling revolution with over 113 millions users registered worldwide. Combine this community with the ease-of-use and functionality of our PHIP65, and individuals have a complete voice solution to communicate both locally and worldwide for pennies.”

Expandable up to four handsets, the PHIP65 is based on the new DECT technology to enhance sound quality while reducing interference with 802.11a/b/g wireless networks, Bluetooth devices, and other home appliances. The unit features an integrated speakerphone, caller ID, three-way calling, call transfer between handsets, and large LCD display on handset. The PHIP65 handset also offers different ring tones to distinguish between landline and Skype incoming calls.

Priced at $129.99 MSRP, the PHIP65 Dual Mode Cordless Phone is available immediately at specific retailers and e-commerce outlets. An additional handset, PHIP651, will also be available for $79.99 MSRP in mid-December. For more information on Auvi, please visit
