Microsoft on Thursday unveiled details of plans for VoIP and video products offered through Windows Live services that will include new VoIP phones and a click-to-call feature for address book names.

The software giant already offers free video communications powered by Logitech and PC-to-PC VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol) capabilities via MSN Messenger, as well as one-way PC-to-phone calling capabilities in select markets via its Windows Live Messenger.

However, Microsoft later this year plans to either expand its VoIP-related offerings or test new features for Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Search and Windows Live Messenger. This move is part of its overall Live services strategy.
