Skype 3.0 Beta for Windows Mobile is out

Written by test

One more nail in the coffin for mobile operators

With the release of Skype 3.0 Beta for Windows Mobile it seems like Skype is trying to get itself in even more trouble with the mobile operators, as the new version doesn't only add the option to send files, but also full SMS support.

We're not sure how well used the option to send files will become, but it does at least make Skype for Windows Mobile a more fully featured instant messaging client. The advantage would be if you need something to be sent urgently to your mobile device from another Skype user, but we can't see this becoming a key feature.

On the other hand, the new SMS option could well gain a lot of popularity, especially with those that travel a lot, since you can use this via a WiFi connection which means that you wouldn't have to pay for roaming charges to be able to send someone an SMS message. Considering that Skype also charge about half the going rate or less for SMS messages compared to most mobile operators, this might even be a useful feature at home, as long as you got a cheap data package.
