Skype for Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional now available
If you are a Windows Mobile phone user and are fond of using Skype for free calls but have been experiencing a few problems with their VoIP client, you may just be pleased to hear this snippet of news.
Skype has now finally updated to run on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional mobile devices. GSMarena installed Skype for Windows Mobile on a Samsung Omnia and an HTC Touch Diamond, and sated that chatting over Skype “is not bad at all.”
According to GSMarena, Skype is a little “mucky” when using HSDPA but is much better when calling over WiFi connections.
Another downside is that when using Skype the touch-screens remain active and the red and green receiver keys don’t appear to work for Skype call management.
The new Skype 126.96.36.199 for Windows Mobile overall didn’t hurt functionality but fails to make full use of the Samsung Omnia’s screen real estate in all windows.
If you get it and use it and find any problems just drop us a line.
