msmobiles.com – Early version of Skype client for Windows Mobile Smartphone released !!!: “It is text only version – doesn’t support voice yet – it’s only for instant messaging (IM) but anyway this is big breakthrough and since (yet) most MS smartphones doesn’t have Wi-Fi anyway, the lack of voice is not crucial. Voice over IP over GPRS, due to low transfer speeds and big network latency, would be impossible anyway…. ”
Data only at the moment, zo ‘ just another IM client’. The Smartphone comes standard with MSN client anyway, so the real benefit of this is very relative to the number of ‘buddies’ you have in Skype .
