Skype 'coming to iPhone soon'
Could land on April Fools' Day...
Skype is reportedly set to imminently release an iPhone version of its VoIP service.
According to GigaOM, the eBay-owned service could announce an application for the iPhone as soon as next week, during the wireless CTIA tradeshow in Las Vegas that starts on 1 April.
However, Skype declined to comment on the speculative report.
Skype already offers a Windows Mobile version of its P2P voice and IM client. In January this year the company announced an Android version - dubbed Skype Lite - of its service.
The outfit also hinted earlier this year that an iPhone client was in the works, too. ®
Big deal Skype on my iPhone. I also use Fring to speak to people on Skype; true it only works over wifi, but then that's all I need it to do.
Better than Fring...
Truphone now supports Skype and is a much more reliable iPhone client than Fring in my experience.
I use Skype already
I already use Skype on my iPod touch via Fring, a free app in the iTunes store.
