The Skype Phone Is Here

3skypephone.pngIt’s Skype in your pocket, wherever you go. It works with 3, the mobile provider in the UK (and Australia, Austria, Denmark, Hong Kong, Italy, Ireland, Macau and Sweden) that’s already providing Skype on its compatible handsets (through its X-Series internet offering and more recently on all its Mix & Match tariffs if the phone supports it).

The 3 Skypephone does work as a regular mobile phone (on 3 pay as you go or pay monthly), but as you might have guessed from the name, it’s the first phone to build Skype functionality into the core of the device. You can import your Skype contacts into the phone’s contact list and there’s a single call history list for Skype and regular mobile calls. You can always broadcast your Skype status and make unlimited Skype-to-Skype calls wherever you go (subject to a very reasonable fair use policy).

It’s also a pretty slick piece of kit: it’s a 3G phone with a 2 megapixel camera, bluetooth, a 2” 220 x 176 screen, and a microSD slot to add up to 1 GB of memory. It has an internet browser (with 3’s Launcher for easy access to popular sites like eBay, Facebook and YouTube), a music player, and it runs Java applications and games. And did I mention you can make unlimited Skype-to-Skype calls? All in all it’s pretty awesome.
