Skype Releases VoIP on Android Phones

Mobile VoIP FTW?


Skype just released its application for all Android phones.  Currently, it can be used over WiFi; however, a hack allows Skype calling to be used over 3G for true mobile VoIP calling.  If your Skype caller ID is the same as your cell phone number, you can make those international calls at a fraction of the price.

What do you think about this breakthrough?  Do any of you already use Skype for VoIP?

I use Skype but other than calling my friends internationally, I don't use it to just call people in general. I feel that having a real number is more safe and stable.

Skype on phones always seems like a strange concept because it basically takes money off the provider, but whatever; I'd rather pay less! :P
