Skype For IPhone Brings Reliable VoIP To Your Pocket

Skype dropped their official iPhone client in the App Store earlier today, and it delivers reliable VoIP calling over a Wi-Fi connection. But it’s also reportedly working over 3G on the beta 3.0 firmware.

That last bit is according to 9 to 5 Mac, which found that calling with Skype on a phone running a developer’s beta of the upcoming 3.0 firmware works just fine—Skype “treats the 3G line like any other internet connection.”
