Skype 3.0 Beta out now for Windows Mobile
Great news for all Windows Mobile and Skype fans! The new beta version of the popular IM application is now available. Skype 3.0 Beta adds two wonderful features, which were badly wanted by the users. Firstly, we now have file sending. Why wasting a hundred words to describe yesterday’s party, when you could send a few images? The other new feature is SMS sending, but in order to use it, users will need to have their cell phone number added in their profile. Short text messages are paid, but the rates offered by Skype are really low.

Sadly, this version is available only for Windows Mobile devices for now. Enough talk. Use the links below to download and test Skype 3.0 Beta (don’t forget to share your impressions with us) or watch the video, in which John Nguyen shows the new features.

Let me think of practical reasons why this is good for WinMo users. Ummmmm..... VZW offers an unlimited GLOBAL DATA plan while travelling in Europe, and some other countries. If I have the SAGA i770 a dual CDMA/GSM GLOBAL phone, I can use the data to talk via skype and not pay 1.99/min while travelling abroad! You are all morons!

The MAJOR problem with Skype on WM was that sound output was only available on the device's speaker (so EVERYONE could hear), instead of the earpiece. I believe BT output did not work either. Does this new release fix this major problem? Doesn't sound (sic) like it...
