Skype for Symbian OS Rocks !!
Today I made my first skype to skype call on my symbian series 3 phone. And although the call quality was not that good, I couldn't believe that I hadn't thought of this before.
I had started using skype some time back, when I used its free skype to skype calling facility to call home. Wonderful service, simple user iterface and absolutely free. How I wished a similiar service would come to wifi enabled phones.
A couple of weeks back, NOKIA released Skype for Symbian series 3 for free downoad on OVI store. The app could be installed on symbian phones and using wifi or 3G, could connect and make calls just like the desktop version. I ran home, connected and downloaded the installation.
Now I knew for some time that my neighours had WiFi hub, and if I could just get a leeetle bit of that signal, I could test it out.
And today, I asked my friend Az to come online on Skype. Connected to WiFi and launced Skype. It took me some time to find out the optimal signal strength, but it did work beautifully. We spoke for some time to test out the quality. Along with calls, instant messaging also works, and all the bells and whistles are included.
