Skype to add versions

Skype will introduce new applications for its VoIP software at next month's Mobile World Congress in Spain, Pocket-lint maintains in a Monday report citing a statement from the company. Specifics are unknown, but the company has said that the new software versions will be made for various mobile operating systems and the company will announce partnerships with major handset and mobile technology vendors.

These could, and are expected to, involve a dedicated application for Apple's iPhone, a similar app for the BlackBerry Storm and via an update to Windows Mobile 6.5 itself. Just this month, the company introduced Skype lite, a no-frills client meant for Android-powered devices and the many mobile phones that are capable of running Java applications.
