I’d say Skype just upped the ante in the mobile VoIP game: from now until at least the end of the calendar year, all SkypeOut calls to landline or mobile phones within the U.S. and Canada are FREE! If you’re calling outside of the U.S. or Canada OR you’re outside and calling in, the old SkypeOut rates apply. Still, this is a huge step for Skype users. Thanks for the tip, Dave!
Update: the free SkypeOut deal works on all platforms, including the Pocket PC / Windows Mobile version. You can truly call out to any landline or mobile within the designated area simply by using WiFi and a handheld device. What will the cellular market’s response be?
