Yesterday, Skype released a new Skype version for Windows Mobile Pocket PCs and updated from "Pocket PC 1.2 beta" to "Pocket PC 2.0 beta".
However, if you expect the PC v2 video calling functionality for Pocket PCs now, you will be disappointed because v2 only adds a graphics update (2.0 style) as well as an improved contact list sorting. That's the only changes. All the rest are buxfixes (some of them important, others aren't).
As introduced with v1.2 the first time, also 2.0 comes in two different versions, the standard version and the "low CPU" version which Skypes recommends if your Pocket PC has a CPU of 312 MHz "only". However, there is still no TI OMAP 850 version available which means virtually none of the new HTC Pocket PCs can be used for Skype.

Cheers ~ Arne
