just launched Skype 3.0 Beta for Windows Mobile. Beside some fixes it includes
two great new features: SMS and file transfer. With Skype 3.0 Beta for Windows
Mobile you can send text messages from your phone at Skype's low rates as well
as you can send and receive files with your Skype contacts around the world.
Furthermore the Skype developer team spruced up the user interface and combined
the Windows Mobile Pocket PC (touchscreen) and Smartphone (non-touchscreen) apps
into a single download.
Now that Skype for Windows Mobile supports file transfer, you can send and
receive documents on the move. Of course, Skype-to-Skype file transfers are
secure and private, so you can send sensitive documents in the knowledge that
they're safe from prying eyes, even across unsecured WiFi networks.
When you're abroad, for instance connected to a WiFi, the new SMS feature is a
great way to avoid mobile roaming charges since you pay only
low SMS rates to send messages to friends and family. Of course, roaming
charges may apply if you're connecting to Skype using a 2 or 3G network.
For sure, Skype 3.0 Beta for Windows Mobile still supports free Skype-to-Skype
calls, free Skype-to-Skype instant messaging as well as call to landline and
mobile phones with Skype Credit or a subscription.
Skype 3.0 Beta for Windows Mobile is compatible with Windows Mobile Professional
and Windows Mobile Standard smartphones (5.0, 6 and 6.1) and requires a minimum
free storage memory of at least 12 MB on your device or 6 MB free if you are
installing on a memory card.
