Following the introduction of the calling application of Skype on majority of the smartphones by Verizon Wireless in the earlier part of the year, reports confirm that Verizon Wireless is all set to launch the application on the 3G multimedia phones as well.
With this move, the non-smartphone crowd would be able to access the same features and service, which is already being enjoyed by the users of smartphone at no extra cost.
As confirmed by the Company, Skype would be made available on the Korean and simple Chinese handsets as well.
Further, as per the official reports, the application would also be updated, and at the same time it would entail better user interface, which will be supported with drop-down menus and flags for international calling.
Confirming the development, Jennifer Byrne, Executive Director of Business Development, Verizon Wireless, said, "Skype mobile from Verizon Wireless not only takes advantage of the reliability and breadth of our wireless network, but it’s also proving to be a great option for military families with loved ones stationed overseas, people with relatives in Asia or South America, and businesses with a global presence”.
And, with the World Cup starting soon, there’s no better way to talk or chat about the action with far-flung fans and family than Skype mobile, he added.
No details have been furnished by Verizon Wireless as to which handsets would support the application, and by when the same would be available.
