I’ve been waiting for this since getting my N97, and now its official. Skype has released verion 1.0 of its VoIP client for Symbian^1 (S60v5) devices.
Cool that its here, not so cool in that its not integrated into the OS as the N97 was once shown to have it some months back when the N97 was initially announced.
No complaints, but I can now say that I can really take advantage of this excellent service. I see some issues – for example, I’ve got Skype entries in my mobile’s addy book, but those don’t come up in the app, so I’ve got to see about that one, but otherwise, this seems about the same as the beta Symbian release.
To download visit http://skype.com/m from your mobile or http://www.skype.com/intl/en/download/skype/symbian/ from any other computer.
Update: I did notice the same issue that I had when I ran the beta client on my N95 in that the app would not load if you’ve got a ton (1000+) contacts. Also, on a device like the N97, if you try to get load-happy and have a ton of apps open, Skype will be one of the first to be shut down. Really need to get that integration piece worked on so that these issues don’t happen so easily, but am otherwise kinda happy with this.
