Skype Mobile Phone Now Available

For someone who is very addicted to Skype to maintain my long distance relationship with my wife in Toronto (for 3 years now), you can't imagine how delighted I am with the launch of Skype mobile phone.
mobile technology
The low-cost advantage inherent in VoIP services and the power of mobility is a deadly combination that can shake and shape the future of the wireless industry.

Dubbed as 3 Skyphone, it is a collaboration between eBay's VoIP company Skype and mobile phone group 3. It will be available for a price of �£49.99 for "Pay As You Go" customers and free for monthly subscribers.

Moreover, the 3 Skypephone will be available this year in the UK, Australia, Austria, Denmark, Hong Kong, Italy, Ireland, Macau and Sweden.

Will it be available in the U.S.? Sorry to disappoint you guys for 3 Skypephone is dual band and therefore will not work in the USA.

But don't lose hope for this is just the beginning of something great for mobile consumers. 3 may not be able to do that but there are other startup VoIP companies developing this same concept for the American market.

As expected, there are some flaws in this new Internet mobile phone. Go over to Skype Journal to know what's missing in this revolutionary device.
