3 Skypephone arrives

3 Skypephone
The 3 Skypephone has finally arrived, but only for our friends across the pond - the Brits. Although Australia, Austria, Denmark, Hong Kong, Italy, Ireland, Macau and Sweden are planned sometime later in the year. What, no U.S.? Of course, 3 doesn't have a U.S. presence. Anyway, under UK-based 3's plan, Skype VoIP calls and IMs are free to any other Skype user, but alas SkypeOut calls to PSTN numbers will NOT work. Although, Skype and 3 claim SkypeOut will be added at a later day. We'll see...

The 3G Skypephone weighs just 85g and was made for 3 by Chinese manufacturer Amoi. Qualcomm was involved as well. The 3G phone includes a 2 megapixel camera, a microSD slot (up 1 gigabyte), and Bluetooth connectivity. It'll also play music of course. They are offering pay-as-you-go for £49.99 or you can get the phone for free if you agree to a monthly plan contract. Check out the video of it in action.
