Granddad Proof Skype Video Phone

Found 20th Sep 2010
So I’m looking at hooking up my granddad with a Skype video phone, preferably i would like one with the need for a PC/laptop. I’ve seen an Asus SV1T, looks good but the 0.3mp camera seems a bit pointless. I was wondering if anyone else has had to buy a similar product and can recommend one

Have you tried a small laptop with stripped down Linux/Windows 7? You can customise Windows to hide all but 2 very large buttons for eMail and Skype on the desktop.

There is also a plugin for Windwos Media Centre, that integrates Skype into it's menus, allowing for easy skype, picture and video viewing. Downside is that it doesn't allow incoming Skype video.
