Nokia Puts Skype on N800 Tablet
Nokia said Wednesday that it would add Skype capabilities to its N800 Internet Tablet. Users would be able to make phone calls from the device as long as they are connected to a Wi-Fi network. Although this signals an important first step in bringing the VoIP to more mobile devices, it still falls short of total mobility using the product.
"Our users are no longer just using Skype on their computer desktops," Skype mobile business development chief Eric Lagier said. "With the growth of mobile devices and Wi-Fi, consumers expect to be connected wherever they are, at the office, at home or on the move," Those interested in the product can download it from the Skype Web site.
