  1. Om, I don’t think this phone is compatible with many Macs.

    For example, the PowerBooks don’t have a pre-amp on their mic inputs. And you need a pre-amp on the mic because the power from the mic is so low.

    I think this is why the copy for the Hulger on Skype’s site says “Compatible with Mac OSX when used with iMic (adaptor)”.

    The iMic itself costs $30-$40.

  2. oh damn… the image shows the device plugged into a powerbook – what crap … false imagery. oh well, since i have an iMic, now is a good time to buy this little cute handset.
