Skype Your Samsung Television

Internet voice and video phone company Skype is joining forces with electronics giant Samsung as the convergence of computers/internet with home entertainment continues…

What does this all mean? How about making video calls from your television?

As for the specifics, Samsung’s new LED 7000 and 8000 series of LCD televisions will include the Skype software embedded in their Internet @ TV feature. Simply connect the TV to the Internet, connect a Freetalk TV Camera (from the Skype Shop) and you will be able to vid-call other Skype users for free and any standard land or cell line for a minimum charge.

The televisions, shipping now to other parts of the world, should be available in the United States by June of this year.

“Honey, the TV is ringing…!”
