"Our engineers have been hard at work on Skype for Windows Mobile over the last few months. Just over two months after the release of 2.5 Beta, we're ready to share the Gold version with you. We've fixed a bunch of bugs, and smoothed and refined the user experience on new devices. Head over and download it now - for both Pocket PC and Smartphone devices. However, I know how keen you are to learn about the latest beta versions from our labs, and so we're also previewing the first beta of Skype 3.0 for Windows Mobile at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today. It includes two great new features: SMS and file transfer. With 3.0 Beta, you can send text messages from your phone at Skype's low rates, and send and receive files with your Skype contacts around the world. We'll be releasing 3.0 Beta in March, so keep your eyes peeled for more news on this blog."
The folks at Skype have unleashed the gold version of Skype 2.5 for Windows Mobile. And there's plenty more coming in the months ahead, starting with the beta version of Skype 3.0, and a Skype panel for the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1.
