New version of Skype for Windows Mobile at long last

skype-wm-25

We love us some Skype on jkOnTheRun, Kevin and I were in a Skype chat when word of a new beta version of the VoIP software for Windows Mobile came over the wire.  Skype for Windows Mobile has been a long time sitting at the same version so this new beta version 2.5 is welcome news.  Skype claims the usual improvements with this new version:

  • Improved sound quality
  • Better stability
  • Familiar Skype interface

There are versions for both Windows Mobile Standard and Pro and according to Skype calls can be made using either WiFi or 3G connections.  I wonder if this new version is gentler on battery life than the older one?  If anyone has tried it and can let us know please do.
