Geniousnet has released Genius Navigator 380, which is 1200 dpi optical mouse as well as a tethered VOIP / IM phone.
According to Genius, Genius Navigator 380 can be carried along with your notebook anytime, anywhere. As long as you have internet connection, be it in the office, home or your favorite hangout, and you are writing that paper, over due home work or browsing the Internet, and the LED on the Navigator 380 blinks to tell you that someone just called you through Instant Messenger or your VOIP application like Skype. And if the PC speaker is on, the ringing will also alert you for the incoming phone call. So one just needs to pick up the mouse, and open it up like a clamshell mobile phone to Navigator 380.
Genius also tells that, the Genius VOIP Mouse software can support up to six Instant Messengers (Skype, MSN, Yahoo, GoogleTalk, QQ and AIM) and combine these IMs into one window. Seven buttons in Navigator 380 are for the phone functions --- Phone on/off, List up/down, Volume up/down and OK for call up the IM window.
