Skype For Pocket PC Beta

Thinking about giving Skype a try on your Pocket PC, or do you already have it installed? Well, it is a pretty nice package and I have been using it for awhile now. I have an Ipaq with built-in WiFi and this is one of the coolest things I have on it. Anywhere that I have access to a WiFi connection, I can use Skype on my Pocket PC. This allows me to use my Ipaq as a phone essentially. The downside is that it is not a frequently updated program, but this may be the cure. This beta was just released and is available for you to download. The changelog Skype posted announces the following:

  • change: Windows Mobile 5.0 supported
  • change: devices with 300+ MHz CPU supported. Skype will not operate on devices with ~300MHz CPU while using an external WiFi card
