Win a Biscotti TV Phone from AndroidGuys!

Win a Biscotti TV Phone from AndroidGuys!

Video chat on an Android phone is pretty cool, right?  On a tablet, it’s even better.  But what about Google Talk on a television?  Awesome!  The Biscotti TV Phone is exactly the type of gadget that allows for this service.

Hooked up to your TV via HDMI, the Wi-Fi Biscotti features a 5-megapixel camera and comes with a 6-button remote control.  The size of the device is nearly identical to the food that bears its name and sits on top of your TV set.

Able to work in a TV-TV capacity, Biscotti is also a great way to video chat with your fellow Android users. Perhaps the best feature in the Biscotti is that you can sit far enough away from the device as to not look silly to your caller.  What’s more, you don’t have to worry about that unflattering double-chin that accompanies video chat from your phone.  On second thought, maybe the feature we dig the most is that you don’t have to switch inputs to work – it pops up over top Law & Order!

Features of the  Biscotti TV Phone:

  • Real-Life Picture and Sound – High-definition camera and microphone captures the entire room, allowing large groups of family and friends to move about freely and naturally.
  • Easy to Use – Biscotti is a single device that sits nicely atop your TV and sets up in minutes. You can control it from the couch with a simple 6-button remote.
  • Free calls to Anyone, Anywhere – Visit family and friends in their living room, dorm room or anywhere in between, worldwide.
  • Ready When You Are – Like your home phone, Biscotti is always on. No more scheduling video calls or waiting for the computer to start. Just tap the remote.
  • You’re In Control – Receive calls while watching TV. You can even set Biscotti to turn on the TV and auto answer certain calls.
  • Everything is Included – No computer or phone line is required. If you have Wi-Fi and an HDTV, you’re ready to go!

    Wow this is a great giveaway thanks android guys.

    This particular product would really make a huge difference in my life. 5 years ago I moved to Texas from New Jersey to serve the country. Having lived in Jersey my entire life just about every person I know lives up there as well. Now that I have a young family it’s become tougher to deal with the distance. Video chat is great on phones but at times a bit cumbersome. Perhaps this device could be an answer to my kids seeing their family more and actually get to know them. This could be a great start. Thanks again for introducing us to products like this and having great contests.

    We’ve been talking about video phones since the 50s. None have clicked yet. But using the TV and a simple remote that even Grandma can understand, brilliant. I think Biscotti could be winner we’ve been waiting for!

    The greatest part of waking everyday is there is always a new gadget or some gadget you can afford to buy. But nothing is sweeter than winning one. I eagerly look forward to having this rare instrument of expression in my home. Perhaps today will be my lucky day. To whomever may win this, spread it around with your friends and spread the word about one of the newest technological instruments. Good luck everyone!

    Not a bad idea, and a good way to get newer features to those who haven’t jumped onto the Internet-TV bandwagon yet. Now, you do know, this technology will be popping up integrated into TVs, I just wonder how long before a company is smart enough to integrate the microphone into the remote control though.
