Skype to bring app for Nokia N900 this week

Skype will launch an app later this week for the Nokia N900 that will let users hold two-way video calls. Thus far, conversations can be had with other Skype users on their notebooks or desktops, but the service will soon include the ability to call other mobile clients and Skype-on-TV users with LG and Panasonic sets.

The N900 has a typical camera on the back and a front-facing camera that enables the video calls. Video calling can be done using the phone's built-in Wi-Fi connection or over a 3G data network.

At the same time, Russ Shaw, vice president of Skype Mobile, said an Android Skype app will be available before the end of the year. As for Palm's webOS compatibility, Shaw says there are no plans for an app, but if a carrier shows interest, the company may develop one with the carrier. [via GigaOm]
