A Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) application has been released for Google’s Android operating system.
The software, called iSkoot for Skype, means that owners of the new T-Mobile G1 Android handset can make low-cost international telephone calls.
iSkoot calls can be made whether or not Wi-Fi or 3G network access is available.
Calls via iSkoot over standard networks do use up some airtime and data, but can work out significantly cheaper than standard calls on the handset.
In a press release from the company, iSkoot Vice President of Business Development, Jim Hudak, said he is ‘honoured’ to be the first VoIP application capable of running on the Android operating system.
He added that iSkoot’s mission is to continually provide innovative new products that free mobile users from being tied to their desktop.
iSkoot is free to download from www.iskoot.com.
In addition to running on Google’s Android handset, iSkoot for Skype is available on Palm, J2ME, Symbian, Windows Mobile, and Blackberry operating systems, as well as some other devices.
