Skype and mobile carrier 3 launch the SkypePhone in the UK.

The 3 Skypephone is a fully-featured 3G Internet phone with Skype built-in. In addition to Skype calls the phone makes conventional calls over the 3 mobile network.

According to Michael van Swaaij, acting CEO at Skype, "Skype is now truly mobile. This new handset is incredibly easy to use and lets you make free mobile Skype calls when you are on the move to other Skype users all over the world no matter where they are. It couldn't be simpler - put Skype in your pocket and make free Skype mobile calls and send free Skype instant messages at the touch of a single Skype button."
The 3 Skypephone will be available this year in the UK, Australia, Austria, Denmark, Hong Kong, Italy, Ireland, Macau, and Sweden. Skype to Skype calls will always be free from your 3 Skypephone as long as you are on contract or your PAYG 3 credit is topped off monthly. In the UK, the 3 Skypephone is GBP49.99 on a PAYG tariff or free on a contract.

The 3 Skypephone will be available from 3Stores across the UK on November 2nd and from Skype and 3's websites in time for Christmas. The 3 Skypephone is available for pre-order in the UK from today.
