iSkoot for Skype Upgrades

iSkoot, a startup that connects Skype over regular cell phones, just upgraded beta software on its site that lets users receive Skype calls, add and remove contacts, and set an online status. The upgrade also adds support for phones like the Motorola RAZR, SLVR L7, PEBL, v557, Nokia 6021, 6030, 6102 and the Sony Ericsson v600i and w600i.

Other startups like Soonr let users Skype over mobile by accessing a users PC and Eqo also turns Skype mobile over a lot of cell phones. There’s many ways to mobilize Skype, so come back for a review of these competing services next week.
