Just to clarify this for people.

When they say free skype to skype calls, they mean you can call anyone else using the skype client whether its a phone, pda, pc, whatever.

SkypeOut is a service that lets you use your PC to call people on an ordinary phone anywhere in the world cheaply.

Well........ Got my Skypephone today and it is unbelievable. The skype call quality is just as good a cellular. My brother was in bulgaria , i was in the UK and there was no hissing, delays or anything like that. I was very pesamistic but am now utterly impressed. Good work 3!!

This is an absolutely brilliant idea from 3. T-mobile, orange and vodafone all see skype as a threat, whereas three have just said it's there lets use it and boy have they done a good job. This phone is brilliant value for money and really does do what it claims to do.

To Ciggy:
They mean that it is not possible to call using Skype Out, which you have to use when calling regular numbers, and not Skype accounts.
Skype to Skype means account to account, not account(Skype Out)to a regular number.

I'm confussed (easily done)...

As the article says: "the other one is that the Skypephone does not support Skype Out service and hence there is no way to make low-cost long-distance call via your Skype account."

But it says Skype to skype calls are free!
So if I flew to Oz and phoned someone in the Uk on skype, would the call be free?

Well if three are saying all skype calls are free, then you aren't paying for data charges. So why does it matter if it uses wifi or not instead of the 3g network?

so all phones with no wifi are no good?
albeit that most phones nowadays are cameraphones, videophones, mp3 players atc, dont forget that they are all PHONES. used to make PHONECALLS. and beleieve it or not, a lot of people use them precisely for this purpose!!! not everyone needs sat nav etc etc etc....

and once again, skypephone is made by AMOI...
