Nokia swallows Skype on tablet deal

N800 model coughs up wireless calls

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Nokia has made Skype telephone services available via its N800 internet tablet.

The telephone maker said in a statement issued today that existing Nokia users will be able to download Skype for the N800 model from its website.

Using Skype, N800 customers should be able to make calls where ever there is a wireless internet connection (WiFi).

It added that Skype support for the N800 would be available through the feature upgrade release to its latest operating system 2007 edition.

Speaking about the Nokia deal, Skype mobile business development manager Eric Lagier said: "Our users are no longer just using Skype on their computer desktops.

"With the growth of mobile devices and WiFi, consumers expect to be connected wherever they are, at the office, at home or on the move."
