Skype 2.0 ready for iPhone, but calling isn’t free.

Skype 2.0 ready for iPhone, but calling isn’t free.
Skype finally announced that their 2.0 is ready for iPhone, which comes with support for 3G calls. But there’s a catch. Apparently Skype-to-Skype calls will be free, until end of August 2010. After that, there will be a ‘small monthly fee’ for Skype-to-Skype calls, alongside the operator data charges.
Sad case indeed, but never mind that, we should start blasting our iPhones with it now, since the summer’s here.
“Upgrades / improvements include:
- Call using your 3G connection. Skype-to-Skype calls on 3G are free until at least end of August 2010, after which there will be a small monthly fee (operator charges for data will still apply).
- Near CD-quality sound for Skype-to-Skype calls using wideband audio (SILK codec) on iPhone 3GS and 2nd generation iPod touch.
- Enhanced call quality indicator.
- Improved start-up time.
- Fast access to the dial pad from iPhone home screen.”
