Skype is to launch the first version of its VoIP service for the iPhone, writes the BBC. The service will work using the phone’s wi-fi connection but not the mobile network. Calls to other Skype users will be free although other calls will be charged. The software will not feature video conferencing although the firm intimated it might be included in a future version. Skype is also planning to launch a version for BlackBerry phones in May.
Earlier this month Skype announced a new corporate service dubbed Skype for SIP. The software will enable workers to make local and international calls via standard office phones without the need to go through a PC.
