Kansas City, KS (PRWEB) December 18, 2010
XBlue Networks founder and president Larry Steinmetz can add a new professional title to his business card: Celebrity pitchman. That’s because he’s starring as a Guest Host on QVC today as part of the “Great Gifts” show beginning at 8am CST.
Capitalizing on the popularity and use of Skype connectivity, the Lenexa-based communications company will hype their new XBlue Desktop Skype Telephone, which allows users to make and receive Skype calls via a telephone rather than a personal computer.
“We’re fortunate to be selected to offer our products on QVC,” said Steinmetz from the QVC production facility outside Philadelphia earlier this morning. “It’s an incredible marketing opportunity for our company.”
QVC is the number one shopping television network in the nation, with annual sales of over $8 billion, broadcasting live 24 hours a day, 364 days a year. Their programming reaches an estimated 98 million U.S. households.
The XBlue Desktop Skype Telephone provides the best experience for Skype calls because it is “always on” and provides privacy, comfort and excellent voice quality, Steinmetz said. It eliminates the need for a personal computer, and allows users to make calls anywhere in the world for free to other Skype users or call landline telephones or cell phones very inexpensively.
He’s got seven minutes to do just that, as his product segment airs amidst a handful of other offerings during the Friday morning “Great Gifts” hour. Steinmetz has been told the XBlue Desktop Skype Telephone will air at about 8:20am CST.
With Skype now accounting for 13 percent of international phone calls, it has emerged as the largest international voice carrier in the world. There are currently more than 520 million active Skype user accounts worldwide.
Last month, another XBlue telephone system was generating a lot of buzz as it took top honors with the Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Award in the Portable Home Appliances product category. The Innovations Design and Engineering Awards program, sponsored by PCWorld, recognizes the most innovative consumer electronics products in the industry’s hottest product categories.
“We’re a Kansas City company with a lot to celebrate this holiday season,” added Steinmetz. “And our QVC exposure is an amazing gift.”
