Skype Introduces Next Generation Mobile Application for Pocket PC
Skype has released Skype for Pocket PC 2.0, a new software version for Pocket PC devices that offers Skype callers the ability to place Skype voice calls anywhere their device can connect to a high speed Internet connection, via Wi-Fi and 3G networks.

"Skype for Pocket PC 2.0 delivers greater flexibility for callers who want to make free calls or chat without the need for a desktop PC," said Niklas Zennstrom, Skype CEO and co-founder. "Together with our efforts to incorporate Skype into mobile phones, this next generation version of Skype for Pocket PC devices extends the reach of our popular software to an even broader market segment."

Skype for Pocket PC 2.0 works on any Windows Mobile Pocket PC running Windows Mobile Pocket PC 2003 or Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC software with a 312MHz (or faster) processor and equipped with an internal Wi-Fi or 3G (EDGE, EV-DO or UMTS) radio.

Skype for Pocket PC 2.0 enhances voice quality and the number of devices supported by including Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PC, more languages and 240x240 screens. Other key features and benefits include SkypeOut calls, Instant messaging, Presence (including Online, offline, away, call forwarding, device not connected), automatic synchronization of Skype contact list between device and desktop, voicemail and the ability to make SkypeOut calls directly from the device phone book.

Skype for Pocket PC will be available preloaded on a number of devices including Asus MyPal A636, BenQ P50, E-TEN M600, Dopod 700, i-mate PDA2, PDA2K, JASJAR and Qtek 9000 and 9090.

Skype for Pocket PC 2.0 is also supported by the new HP iPAQ hw6900 series Mobile Messenger, a smart device providing customers with the ability to receive email wirelessly using push-email functionality, introduced yesterday at the 3GSM World Congress 2006 in Barcelona.

Skype Certified Pocket PC devices will be made available through the Skype web store and Expansys, as well as retail outlets around the world. Dangaard Telecom, Skype's European distribution partner, will be offering Qtek 9000 and 9090 devices with Skype pre-loaded to their customer base of more than 34,000 points of sale across Europe.
