Skype 2.5 Gold for Windows Mobile, and more in store
Our engineers have been hard at work on Skype for Windows Mobile over the last few months. Just over two months after the release of 2.5 Beta, we’re ready to share the Gold version with you. We’ve fixed a bunch of bugs, and smoothed and refined the user experience on new devices. Head over and download it now – for both Pocket PC and Smartphone devices.
However, I know how keen you are to learn about the latest beta versions from our labs, and so we’re also previewing the first beta of Skype 3.0 for Windows Mobile at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today. It includes two great new features: SMS and file transfer. With 3.0 Beta, you can send text messages from your phone at Skype’s low rates, and send and receive files with your Skype contacts around the world. We’ll be releasing 3.0 Beta in March, so keep your eyes peeled for more news on this blog.
We’ve also been working together with Sony Ericsson and have developed a Skype Panel for the Xperia X1, which tells you at a glance which of your contacts are online. It’ll be available for download in March.
As always, we’re keen to hear your feedback on Skype for Windows Mobile. Leave a comment below, or head over to the Skype Community and join the discussion there.
