Here's a nice early morning surprise. It has been teased and hyped quite a bit for the past week or so since the details were officially announced. Verizon has officially launched Skype Mobile.
With Skype mobile you can:
- Make and receive unlimited Skype-to-Skype calls and instant messages to anyone on Skype
- Know when your friends are available to chat and connect in real time while you’re on the go
- Place international calls using Skype mobile and those calls will never count against your Verizon Wireless plan minutes (Skype mobile credit required)
The real catch here is that only calls to other Skype users are free and unlimited. But it still gives a great option to getting in contact with someone without using your minutes. Skype will work on the BlackBerry Storm 9530, Storm2 9550, Curve 8330, Curve 8530, 8830 World Edition and Tour 9630 smartphones.
