Enews 2.0 breaks the story this morning that Skype has finally released a beta client for its mobile VOIP application. The article states that the beta supports 50 different mobile phone models from Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, and Sony Ericcson (no mention of Blackberry). They haven't released much in the way of details of how it works (I'm assuming it's using the data channel to send calls over the cell network, rather than voice over IP over the data channel). I think the hype around Skype (sorry for the lame pun) has fallen in the last year or so, still Skype remains attractive for SMBs and/or those traveling internationally. I'm anxious to try this, hopefully there will be a BB client before long.
