EQO Communications has announced EQO Mobile for Skype working with the Apple Mac OS X. The software allows users of Apple's Macintosh systems to extend Skype VoIP calling and messaging to their mobile phones.
EQO Mobile for Skype consists of EQO Mobile Internet Phone Service for Skype, launched at the 2006 DEMO technology conference in Phoenix, AZ and EQO Mobile Instant Messaging for Skype, introduced at Spring VON 2006 in San Jose, CA.
EQO Mobile lets users make and receive Skype calls, exchange Instant Messages, and view presence information about their buddies over the Skype network from more than 45 different phone handset models from vendors including Nokia, Motorola, Palm, and Sony-Ericsson. Most recently, EQO announced support for Palm TREO 650 and Motorola ROKR, SLVR, and RAZR handsets.
Using a combination of a phone-resident J2ME client and a presence-enabled Voice-over-IP (VoIP) signaling network, the EQO Mobile Internet Phone Service is capable of bridging online identity, VoIP calling, and Instant Messaging services to more than 200 million J2ME-capable mobile phone handsets already in use worldwide. With more than 74 million registered users, Skype is the dominant player in Internet calling and Instant Messaging communications services worldwide.
