Skype is a P.I.M.P. They act right and what’s more important they know how to act at the right time. And what’s even more important is that they entering the lion’s cage without fear were the big boys are running things, and they pretty much hustle everybody.A month ago or so, they released Skype for iPhone and everybody went crazy. Users thought they were reaching nirvana and carriers didnt know how to stop this , because they need to get money not loose money.
Pretty much they were tooo late with the app release, but they waited for a while, see how Fring and other apps such as IM+ for skype were handling their service and when they decided to release the app, they crushed the market. Now they are about to do the same because they just released the SkypePhone.
The Skypephone is acting real ruff and tuff in the industry and its up and ready for 3G, got a 2-megapixel camera, MP3 player, mobile TV and internet.You can use Skype for free on other 3 handsets too.Skypephone has been developed in partnership with the mobile operator 3. It’s available or coming soon in the following countries: UK, Australia, Italy, Hong Kong, Sweden, Denmark, Austria and Republic of Ireland.
Skypephone it’s free for Pay Monthly customers or you can buy it for £49.99 on Pay As You Go.If you choose 3 Skypephone on Pay As You Go, all you need to do is top up (minimum £10) to use Skype for the next 30 days. And you can use your top up for calls and texts on 3.
So im relly curious how this device changed the plan for Apple since there are rumours that Palm Pre will be released before the WWDC 09 in June, and Skype comes up with the Skypephone. What will we get from Apple? But sadly it’s not available , yet, in the US, and since US is the largest market for Apple ( still!!!) , maybe they wont be bother that much by this release. What do you think?
