CES: Skype Lite landing on Android phone, others too
Skype (www.skype.com) is focused on enabling consumers to connect to Skype™ whenever, wherever and however they choose, while at the same time, making the Skype user experience even better than ever for the more than 370 million registered Skype users worldwide.
To achieve these goals, Skype has released a trial lite version of Skype for Android™-powered mobile phones, beginning with the T-Mobile G1™. In addition, Skype has also introduced an advanced trial of a lite version of Skype for more than 100 other Java-enabled mobile phones from the world’s top five handset manufacturers – Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Motorola and LG. By merging the world’s leading Internet communications software with mobile phones, users who have a data plan for their cell phones, will now be able to stay in touch with their Skype contacts wherever they are, without the need for a smartphone or a WiFi connection.
Plus, as mobile devices get more powerful (e.g., by adding processing power and memory), get larger screens and battery life becomes less of an issue, the company is now able to bring the full functionality of Skype – free voice AND video calling – to these devices. To address this emerging market opportunity, the company has also released the first version of Skype software for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) powered by Intel’s Atom processor. With bigger screens and faster wireless connectivity, MIDs will enable Skype users to experience an excellent mobile video calling experience.
Much of Skype’s success to date is based on delivering a great user experience. For the last six months, an entirely new version of Skype for Windows, called 4.0, has been available through a public beta test. Skype 4.0 – the biggest change to Skype software since the company’s inception – is a work in progress as it incorporates user feedback to make it the best product possible. In just a few weeks, Skype 4.0 will be made available to the public at large to experience the all new Skype. The key things in Skype 4.0 are a new and improved user interface that is even easier to use, is more fun and engaging and has incredible video calling. Plus, Skype 4.0 will support Super Wideband Audio; it will deliver superior quality audio that is almost as good as being there.
At ShowStoppers, come see demonstrations of the lite version of Skype on mobile phones and Skype running on Mobile Internet Devices and get a preview of Skype 4.0 for Windows and learn more about the company’s commitment to delivering the best Skype experience, as well as making Skype available whenever, wherever and on whatever device people want to use it on.
The app has been available in beta form for a growing number of handsets on Skype.com, and isn't expected to change in this initial release.
