The rumors swirled at ITEXPO that Skype would be releasing a new version called Skype Pro which would allow a calling package for Europe for a fee. Here is the post that breaks the news and the web page that can give you the details. By the way the Unyte Desktop Sharing application is getting downloaded thousands of times a day and is a slick package from Webdialogs. You can download it and use it free for 30 days and after that you can keep it free for one to one conferencing or pay to conference with more than one person. I had a chance to catch up with company CEO Lou Guercia at the show and things seem to be going very well for the company.
The package will launch soon at 2 Euros per month and will include:
€0 per minute calls to national landlines*.
Free Skype Voicemail.
€30 off a SkypeIn number.
Exclusive discounts on hardware for Skype.
Up to €15 off the Unyte Desktop Sharing extra.
Two free avatars from CrazyTalk.
Two free ringtones from Emotive.
