  • Skype Coming Tomorrow (Already out in Japan)

    Well the rumors were true. Skype really is coming out on Tuesday (it is already tuesday in Japan and they have Skype). The folks at PC World got a sneak peak so we already know what to expect.
    • Only works over WiFi
    • Calls to landlines 2.1 cents/min
    • Integrated with address book
    • Conference calling (if someone invites you)
    • Chat works over the cellular network
    • Missing SMS, video and proper conference calling, file transfer, and voicemail

      im sure they will improve it over time

      I'm in Australia and just searched for it in App Store on my phone and found it. No reviews yet and the strange thing is that it was posted up on App Store on the 23rd of March :-/

      I have installed it, extremely buggy at this stage, crashes after about 30 seconds every time. Even rebooted my phone, no effect. Hopefully they release a patch soon Will be great once it runs smoothly and over slower bandwidth.

      Skype for T-Mobile G1 can place calls over 3G. did they have to remove that feature to comply with apples rules?

      Thx tosbsas,
      disabled Clippy for "appstore apps support" and can login now. However tried "Test call" and quality is very poor and the app closes after 20-30 seconds. I guess i'll wait for update.

      yep, I had the same trouble. About 20 seconds then gone. I tried disabling clippy app support but the same happened. I will wait till it works before i re- install it.
