    They have a trial version. I just tried to use it. Seems that you can only call SkypeOut numbers and not Skype clients running on a PC. It looks nice for a web app running on a mobile device but a native app would still be much better. I hate having to type in small text fields.

    Hey don where did you get the ipk to try out the app?

    It's not an app. It's just a web based service connection so there is no ipk.

    posted a message about this being available a few weeks back. I was told that "regular" IM+ (non-skype version) for all message systems is coming soon.

    Well assuming this works, this is pretty incredible for a couple of reasons:

    1. VoIP calls are allowed over 3G - (apple won't even allow google voice which uses the cell network)
    2. The web browser is technically capable of utilizing the mic / speaker in order to make a phone call.

    Pretty cool. This a great sign of things to come.

    No, it's just chat and if it even lets you call it will be via Skype Out credit over a their 800 number.

    The reason it's a webapp is most likely because the Skype API is only accessible via a Skype client executable that you have to install as part of your app. As we know we can't run anything yet on webOS so it had to go on a server.

    Too bad it doesn't work because it looks pretty slick.

    I guess don't fully understand skype. Isn't skypeout their service to connect their voip network to real phone numbers?

    What makes you say it will use the 800 number? Is this how other mobile skype apps work?

    You buy Skype Out credit if you need to call overseas. Then you can use it either via a Skype client, that is VoIP, or dial a toll free number. Whether or not the call is free depends on the destination.

    Some Skype mobile apps can use VoIP, for example on the iPhone but only when on WiFi. Others dial the toll free number, for example the SkypeLite app on Android. Both of these are probably due to carrier restrictions.

    There is no way to capture voice and transmit it over IP on the Pre, there is no networking or audio API, so it will have to dial the toll free number (and use minutes of course.)

    I was explaining that in order to interact with the Skype service API, you must have a client executable to talk to. And you can't install any executable on the Pre, so that's likely the reason it's hosted on a server.

    Ok that makes sense. I take my comment back. This is really no different than google voice.
