iSkoot for BlackBerry

iSkoot on Monday afternoon unveiled a new version of its self-titled iSkoot for BlackBerry, giving RIM's device line a chance to use Skype's voice-over-IP service to save on cellphone plan minutes or to reach those who use Internet calling at home. The app is completely independent of a PC and is usable for all of Skype's core services. Owners who have switched on payment plans can receive SkypeIn calls from real-world numbers and reverse the direction with SkypeOut, iSkoot says.

The BlackBerry edition of the software is currently free but requires a BlackBerry with OS 4.0 or later as well as a high-speed cellular Internet connection, such as AT&T's HSDPA access or Verizon's EVDO. The service works with phones as old as the 7100 series and as recent as the BlackBerry Curve and Pearl. More of RIM's smartphones are expected to work with iSkoot in the near future.
