Skype coming to iPhone

Soon you'll be able to Skype on the go. Starting Tuesday, iPhone users can download a free application to allow free calls between Skype users.

Skype uses voice over internet protocol to make voice and video phone calls.

One of Skype's unusual iPhone features is the fact that it allows subscribers to use the phone numbers in their existing iPhone address book, so they do not need duplicate lists.

The service will also work on later versions of Apple's iPod touch devices which do not have cellular connectivity.

Mobile Skype will be available for Blackberry phones in May.
