Skype is a great tool for mobile professionals and really anyone wanting a simple way to make free (or low cost) phone calls anywhere in the world. A while back I mentioned an add-on utility that gives you the digital equivalent of an answering machine for Skype but there is a program in beta that looks like the perfect voice mail solution for Skype users.
Skype VM is a service in beta that promises to provide voice mail for Skype users, even if you are not logged into Skype. This opens up exciting possibilities for mobile Skype users and is worth watching. My techADDICTION show co-host Kevin Tofel is previewing Skype VM on his blog now and sharing his impressions with his readers and it’s worth checking out if you are a Skype user.
