iSkoot launches new gateway, connecting cellphones with Skype


iSkoot, a mobile Internet phone company, has announced the iSkoot Mobile Network, which is a gateway that allows mobile phones users to place and receive Internet calls without using PCs, special hardware, custom phones or Wi-Fi hot spots. Initially the gateway will support only Skype Software and will be accessible only for Cingular Wireless's subscribers, but iSkoot has plans to add Google Talk and other PC calling platforms as well as to expand to more wireless carriers. To get access to the iSkoot Mobile Network first users have to install iSkoot Mobile software on their mobile phones. Once the installation is done all the users have to do is use their existing voice connection to connect to iSkoot's gateway, which in turn makes the connection with Skype, as the diagram below reveals.



iSkootMobile is currently available to download on select Nokia Series 60 handsets, but iSkoot plans to release this software for Motorola RAZR, Treo, Nokia Series 40 handsets soon.
