3 Launches The Skypephone

Anyway I really think this is really a cool product. Just have a look at this link for more details.

I had the chance to have it in my hands a few weeks ago and I have to say that it is really a nice piece of hardware and software. Moreover it seems that we have broken the rules gain offering free Skype calls to our customers.

The tight integration of Skype with the handset is another silver bullet of this product. Probably one of the first time I really see a new service being integrated so tightly in the mobile phone software. (Hats off to Qualcomm Brew even if I do not love the technology too much.)

As someone as already noticed it is not a pure VoIP phone but we had to cope with regulatory constraints to launch the product on time.

I love this handset!
