Skype for iPhone Debuts Tuesday with WiFi Only

By  |  2 Comments

The big news this morning is that the news from last week is true. Skype will unveil its iPhone app on Tuesday but it will only work on WiFi. That last bit isn’t unexpected but is disappointing because AT&T certainly doesn’t want Skype honing in on its turf. You can use the chat feature over the Network though. This may be a boost for those using the iPod Touch though, which doesn’t have phone capability.

Word is that Skype for the Blackberry will be out of the chute in May.

    One wonders how exactly would an ipod touch that doesn’t have a microphone or speakers would work with Skype…

    I believe with the right headphones that contain an inline mic.
