In Store Solutions just announced the availability of the FREETALK Everyman HD Webcam (TALK-7140), the new high-definition (HD) webcam that empowers Skype users with true 720p HD video calling.
Available for purchase globally from the Skype Shop, the Everyman HD Webcam enables HD-encoded video for only $49, about the same price as most standard webcams. The compact and lightweight Everyman HD Webcam requires no set up and is plug and play, making it especially convenient for use on the road.
