Skype Updates: 3G Ready and Waiting
Company blogs are such a wonderful thing.
In a recent post on the Skype blog summarizing 2009 for the application, it has been announced that a 3G-capable version of the iPhone Skype app is ready and awaiting the Apple go-ahead for deployment. No real word on when that’ll happen, but it’s nice to know Skype is ready. The second piece of the Skype/iPhone puzzle – push notifications – is also on the radar:
We’ve got a number of updates on the roadmap for 2010 – and yes, I hear you on push notifications. They’ll arrive just as soon as we’ve perfected the experience.
Many of you have also been asking when we’ll release a version which allows you to make calls over 3G – the holy grail of Skype on the mobile, if you like. We’ve had a 3G-capable version ready for some time now, but Apple’s current restrictions mean that they won’t allow us to make it available on the App Store for the moment.
The blog post is quite rich with information and is worth a read. No word on any kind of Skype-In for Canada, but it does seem as though they listen when you email them, so let them know you are interested in Skype-In service in Canada.
