Skype Launches Mobile Beta
Apr 25, 2008, 8:01 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Skype announced a beta application for Java-enabled mobile phones. The application will allow you to access Skype features such as chat, group chat, presence, and Skype-to-Skype calling. The application will use the phone's voice radio to initiate and end calls, but will switch to the data radio for the rest of the session, drastically reducing the number of minutes used per call. Right now the beta is limited to seven markets: Brazil, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Poland, Sweden, and the U.K. Skype will evaluate the program for several months before taking it to a full release. The Java application can be downloaded over the air directly from Skype, or downloaded to a PC and then installed in a phone.
