At the 31tst of July Skype updated its famous VOIP application for the Windows Mobile platform. While there are two versions available for both the touchscreen and non-touchscreen devices, only the first category is upgraded to support Window Mobile 6.1 (Professional).
Since there are not yet many non-touchscreen devices running Windows Mobile 6.1 available, the upgrade policy can be understood. However I don’t doubt that Skype will also release an upgrade for non-touchscreen devices.
Skype generates revenue through its premium offerings such as making and receiving calls to and from landline and mobile phones, as well as voicemail and call forwarding. Skype, based in Luxembourg, has relationships with a growing network of hardware and software providers and is an eBay company (NASDAQ: EBAY). [http://about.skype.com/]
Skype is extremely useful if you are travelling abroad and want to make free computer-to-computer calls or very cheap calls to landlines or cell phones. It can be used over a WiFi or 3G connection. Besides the support for Windows Mobile 6.1 no huge changes have been implemented. So if you own a HTC Touch Diamond, the HP iPAQ Business Messenger or another WM 6.1 Professional device, go and download Skype v188.8.131.52 here !
