AMEX Releases Touch-Sensitive Skype Phone


Not to be confused with the people that send you a credit card bill every month, AMEX Digital has just revealed a new wireless Skype phone that eschews regular buttons in favor of Chocolate-esque touch-sensitive controls.

The TSP-VS501 VoIP phone appears to be a mish-mash of contradictions, however, because while it rocks that svelte exterior and curvaceous form factor, it also has a monochrome display and a severe lack of features. What’s more, it may be a wireless phone, but from what we can gather, it’s not exactly standalone WiFi, still forcing you to be tethered to a PC in some way or another.

It’s does have a “stylish and sober design that should sell very well”, though we’re not sure how much it costs and when it’ll ship. Chances are, though, that it’s an Asia-only (if not Japan-only) device anyways.
