Skype is an odd thing. It's better than most VoIP providers and certainly useful if you make a lot of long-distance calls that could be cheaper over the web, but it requires that ever elusive internets connection.
This new mobile device hits UK stores this Friday and will let Skype users make Skype calls and send Skype IMs to the Skype friends while they presumably have Wi-Fi access.
Thankfully, the phone will make standard cell calls and send texts if you don't happen to find yourself in Wi-Fi range (or in Europe).
No word on a US release. Do you use Skype? Would you consider a Skype cell?
