The newly launched Sony Ericsson P1i is the first mobile phone from the manufacturer to directly offer iSkoot software to consumers worldwide, enabling Skype-to-Skype calls, Skype chat, and Skypeout calls from a mobile handset.
i Skoot today announced that the iSkoot mobile software is now available on Sony Ericsson’s newest handset release, the Sony Ericsson P1i, which launched recently. The iSkoot mobile software is available to Sony Ericsson P1i users via a direct download service through the “More Applications” icon in the Phone User Interface. The iSkoot mobile software is now also available from the Sony Ericsson website . Sony Ericsson is supporting iSkoot to deliver mobile Skype features to its customers around the world.
iSkoot’s solution supports the Skype Software, and the collaboration between the two companies will offer Sony Ericsson users on any cellular network the ability to make Skype-to-Skype calls on their mobile phone at the same cost as making a local call (depending on mobile user’s call plan, normal airtime and data charges may apply), and receive Skype calls at Skype’s call forwarding rates for mobile numbers. This collaboration benefits Sony Ericsson customers worldwide and also generates value for carriers by bringing incremental minutes onto the mobile networks.
iSkoot software supports native Java, Symbian, UIQ, Palm Treo, and BlackBerry platforms.
