iSkoot: Skype's Push Into Mobile Telephony Market

Skype has taken another small but not insignificant step toward enabling it to become a user's primary telephone service: by signing a co-marketing agreement with iSkoot, a company that has developed software for mobile phones that enables them to be used to make and receive Skype calls.
The software will be promoted to handset manufacturers for possible pre-loading onto new handsets and to cellular service providers.

Jacob Guedalia, CEO of iSkoot, said: "This agreement benefits everyone, from handset manufacturers and carriers to the tens of millions of Skype users worldwide. By connecting cell and smart phones to Skype, iSkoot software allows handset vendors and mobile operators to gain new PC calling minutes and increase ARPU. Meanwhile, Skype users will enjoy the benefits of Skype on their cell phone.

iSkoot software enables users to receive and make Skype calls on their mobile phone via the cellular networks. Skype voicemail, however, must be de-activated.
