Feb 19, 2009
At the Mobile World Congress trade show, which took place is Barcelona, companies announced that Skype, software people can use to make phone calls over the Internet, will be iniatially introduced in Nseries smartphones developed by the popular multinational communications corporation Nokia.

It is worth mentioning that the Nseries smartphones run on the company's Symbian S60 operating system.

The fist model to feature Skype will be Nokia N97. The company will start commercializing the device in June. There is yet no information regarding the U.S. carrier for the gadget.

The address-book of the phone will be connected to the Skype software to make users aware when their Skype contacts are online so they can make free voice calls or send SMS.
Users will also have the possibility to make phone calls from the integrated Skype to other mobile phones or landline numbers. For these services, however, users will have to pay.

The Skype on Nokia's Nseries will work perfectly on both high-speed 3G cellular data networks and Wi-Fi.

Users already have the possibility to download the software because the application is available on the Internet for a number of operating systems and mobile phones, including different products from Nokia.
