Skype Introduces Version 1.2 Beta for Pocket PC
Skype is doing a beta release of Skype for Pocket PC version 1.2, which adds the ability to send and receive voice mail messages, with more supported languages, includind English, German, French, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Italian and Spanish.

The software in its previous version already allowed users to the ability to make Skype to Skype calls, Skype Out calls and instant message chats when connected to a high speed data network, including Wireless LAN (WiFi), cellular 3G or celluar EDGE.

According to a blog post on the Skype website the requirements were lowered a little, and instead of a Pocket PC device running a 400MHz CPU the new software will work on a 300MHz device. This will include some of the latest Pocket PC Phone Edition devices that use slower CPU speeds to conserve battery power.

The requirement for a 400MHz CPU is still there if the device is using an external Wireless LAN card.

The software is an evaluation version and should be used only if there user is aware of risks of beta (not final version) software and backups are in place.
