Skype on iPhone

skype_logoWe live in a crazy world when an Internet auction site can compete with mobile phone companies. Ebay’s Skype will be competing directly with wireless voice services and network operators as it plans to release a version of its Internet-based phone software for Apple’s iPhone. The move could be a critical hit to AT&T, which has an exclusive distribution agreement with Apple. skype_on_iphoneThe application probably won’t be too appealing to current iPhone users who are already under contract with AT&T. But it’s likely to affect the decisions of those considering the purchase of an iPhone, like me. Now I get to ask myself if I’d rather communicate using VOIP or a wireless cell phone contract. Skype may have 405 million users around the world, but is that enough? Should I wait? I think a lot of people will see this as advantageous, especially those who already use Skype. Needless to say, it’s a good thing for Apple. Not such a good thing for AT&T.
