WebMessenger has launched WebMessenger Mobile for Skype, a service enabling mobile users to save on long-distance charges by using their Skype accounts to make and receive VoIP calls on their mobile devices.
The service provides real-time presence detection of colleagues, friends and family on the users' mobile devices, enabling them to send and receive chat messages, make phone calls to other Skype contacts, receive calls through their own Skype accounts, and connect up to four participants simultaneously for on-the-go conference calling.

By triggering the users' active SkypeOut account, WebMessenger Mobile for Skype allows users to call anywhere in North America for free and to countries around the world based on Skype's low rates.
WebMessenger Mobile for Skype is available for RIM BlackBerry, Palm handhelds, Windows Mobile Pocket PC and J2ME Java phones.
WebMessenger Mobile for Skype free version supports click-to-Call from a mobile device, text chat, add new contacts and 20 contacts.
An advanced version of the product is available for a US$3.95 monthly subscription, adding multi-party conferencing for up to 4 participants, hundreds of contacts from a Skype buddy list.
