CAMBRIDGE, MA – October 11, 2007 – iSkoot, the leading provider of mobile Internet communications solutions, today announced that iSkoot will be featured in the Sony Ericsson booth at the Symbian Smartphone Show. iSkoot’s representatives will showcase their iSkoot for Skype solution — a mobile application that enables Skype on mobile phones — on the newest UIQ smartphone devices, including the Sony Ericsson P1i and Sony Ericsson W960. iSkoot will be presenting their demonstration at Sony Ericsson’s booth #7 throughout the conference’s two-day run on October 16 and 17 at the Excel Centre in London, England. The Symbian Smartphone show features 120 exhibitors and draws more than 3500 delegates from around the globe.
“We’re honored by the Sony Ericsson invitation, particularly following our successful collaboration to bring mobile VoIP to consumers. We are also eager for the opportunity to demonstrate the iSkoot application’s latest capabilities to so many major players in the smartphone community.” said Roy Erez, VP of Business Development at iSkoot.
iSkoot’s mobile software delivers Skype-to-Skype and SkypeOut calling capabilities, presence information and live Skype chat features to a variety of UIQ 3- and S60-powered smartphones. Users on virtually any cellular network can make Skype-to-Skype calls on their handsets at the same cost as making a local call (depending on mobile user’s call plan, normal airtime and data charges may apply), and receive Skype calls at Skype’s call-forwarding rates for mobile numbers. iSkoot’s carrier-friendly solution utilizes the existing mobile network infrastructure to route Skype calls through the voice channel, and works without any need for PCs, special hardware, custom phones or WiFi hot spots.
San Francisco-based iSkoot brings leading internet services like Skype to mobile handsets around the world, delivering rich consumer experiences with minimal impact on operator networks.
iSkoot launched the first and only carrier-grade, carrier-deployed Skype-for-Mobile application in 2006, and now powers the Mobile World Congress award-winning 3 Skypephone currently sold in eight countries on three continents.
iSkoot takes advantage of the voice-optimized circuit-switched network for delivery of voice communications, in keeping with its mission to engineer elegant and operator-friendly solutions to the challenge of bringing resource-intensive internet services to mobile handsets.
