Today, Skype released a new Skype Windows Mobile version Beta - Skype for Pocket PC 2.1 Beta.
Skype for Pocket PC provides customers the freedom to enjoy Skype 'on the go' at home, the office or outdoors - wherever a Wi-Fi, EDGE or 3G network is that a Pocket PC can connect to. So find your favorite Wi-Fi hot spot and Skype away. If you get an EDGE or 3G enabled Pocket PC with broadband data plan, you can really start going places with your buddies always nearby.
Beside fixing a lot of Skype for Pocket PC 2.0 bugs, the 2.1 Beta also adds a lot of cool new features. Some are handy, some are useful, others just increase the compatibility to Skype 2.5 for PCs.
Skype for Pocket PC 18.104.22.168 Beta now supports also:
- One click access to Skype from the device home screen
- Multi-chat support
- SkypeIn support
- Voicemail support
- Call forwarding support
- Profile editing
- Detailed search
- Contact list information with avatar and mood messages support
- Improved chat-more emoticons and 'set topic' ability
- Animated emoticons
- Skype Launcher
- GSM and Skype call management
- Larger Dial Pad and delete button in Dial Pad
- Online help
Skype for Pocket PC 22.214.171.124 Beta is available for download now but please keep in mind - it's still a (public) Beta.
Unfortunately, there is still no sign of a public Smartphone Beta (with VoIP support) as mentioned earlier by Red Herring.
