SanDisk and Skype Introduce U3-Compatible VoIP Software
SanDisk Corporation and Skype have announced a partnership that allows Skype users to make free calls and chat on almost any Microsoft Windows-based PC without having to download software.

The Skype software will come pre-loaded on SanDisk's newest Cruzer Micro and Cruzer Titanium lines of Skype-certified U3 enabled smart drives. This will allow consumers to make free PC-to-PC audio and video calls to Skype users in most major markets by simply inserting their smart drives into a computer's USB port.

SanDisk's Cruzer Micro and Cruzer Titanium with U3 gives users a portable way to carry files and programs without leaving any personal information behind on a computer. This means Skype users can take their Skype account complete with their contacts, settings and preferences on a small device and make calls, with video as an option, from any PC such as those in Internet cafes and hotels.

The U3 platform, which allows a variety of applications to be loaded onto a flash drive, is a standard feature on all capacities of SanDisk's latest versions of its Cruzer Micro and Cruzer Titanium USB smart drives.

Other U3-compatible programs on the SanDisk drives offer anti-virus, file synchronization and password management functions. U3 applications work with any PC using Microsoft Windows XP or 2000 operating systems.

The new drives will display the Skype logo on the packaging and will feature one free month of Skype voicemail for the mobile user to get messages from their Skype calls even when on the go.

The SanDisk Cruzer Micro with Skype preloaded is available at retail outlets in the USA and Europe, including Skype's online store, for suggested retail prices ranging from US$39.99 to US$199.99. Capacities are 512 megabytes (MB), 1 gigabyte (GB), 2GB and 4GB.

SanDisk Cruzer Titanium with Skype comes in 1GB and 2GB, at suggested prices of US$74.99 and US$119.99 respectively, and is now shipping in most major markets.
