Skype For Your Mobile Phone

9 01 2009

// Yeeps, Skype people won’t stop to surprise us. They just launched Skype Lite (still in beta) for mobiles phones (Java-enabled phones) and for Android-powered devices. Now most Sony Ericsson, Nokia, LG and Motorola users can install this pretty nice application on their mobiles phones and “Yuppie”; Skype chat and Skype-to-Skype calls on mobile.

Skype Lite has the following capabilities:

  • Make Skype-to-Skype calls to other Skype users anywhere in the world.
  • Send/receive instant messages to/from individuals or groups.
  • Make Skype calls at low rates to people on landline or mobile phones.
  • Receive calls to your online personal phone number on Skype.
  • See when your Skype contacts are online/available to chat.

This version of Skype needs a mobile internet connection and uses local air time in order to sign in, update your contact list, send/receive calls or messages and update your presence on Skype. To be able to use this version of Skype, you will need both a calling plan and a data plan. You can even receive your Skype calls directly on your mobile phones. Call your Skype friends in Mauritius with local call rates.

I have just installed Skype Lite on my mobile phone (Sony Ericsson Rocks!), it has a nice user interface, easy navigation and fast response on Cellplus(or Orange) network. During testing, none of my Mauritian Skype friends were online; so no test calls for the time being. 

Click here to go to the download page.

Give it a try, Skype rocks!! Stay tuned for more on this as it develops.
