Official Skype Client for 5800 Launched, or has it?Filed Under Nokia 5800 Applications
Skype, the best known name in VoIP today has been overlooking the symbian platform for long. Amazed by the market success of our 5800 and the emergence of other offerings from Nokia and other manufacturers, Skype has finally released an official client for symbian fifth edition.
Before you get all excited, we should warn you that Skype have packed in a dampener with their debut client for the symbian platform: the client works only on the networks of 3 in Europe and few other destinations. Hit on the jump button for further details.
Thats a cool background there, ain’t it? Thats far as our first hand experience goes with this client as the app works only on 3 networks in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Austria, Australia and Hong-Kong. Now, thats one more reason for us to consider shifting our base to the UK!
From what we make out of this application, our friends at Skype seem to have defined the access points only for 3G networks of 3 in Europe and elsewhere. While we are glad to finally see an official client of Skype on 5800s, we are (or rather forced ) to rely on Nimbuzz for all our Skype needs for the time being. Do let us know how this client fares on your 5800 (if you are one of the chosen ones!).
