Skype releases voice client for a plethora of cellphones [UPDATED]

skype on cellphone

Running a Skype client on a cellphone isn’t really new, but this is the first time Skype has made it’s own client available for almost 50 different models, including many popular low-end and mid-market phones. The new client allows you to talk connect your cellphone to your Skype account. It uses cellphone minutes like usual, but adds all your Skype conacts and gives you a mobile presense.

The application is Java-based, so it’ll take a moment to load, and you won’t have access to many of your phone’s other features while you use it. Still, if you’re on plan with decent data but crappy minutes, this might be worth looking into.

To get it, just go here on your mobile phone.
