Is Broadsoft Just Hyping Things? He's Not Really Wrong

No, Skype Mobile Is Not iSkoot

In a short and polite but still corrective email I was notified by iSkoot that my guess that they were supplying Skype with the mobile client for 30 new handsets was incorrect.

They're not.....HMMMM. That makes me realize some things, and apparently, so too is PhoneBoy who seems to have identified a very interesting problem that may have the folks at Skype a wee bit nervous about them.

So this begs the question, if iSkoot isn't Skype's provider of choice, then did the recent management shakeup at iSkoot that moved much of the USA based aspects of the business from Boston to the Valley in some way hinder the relationship?

The H3G SkypePhone is one of the most amazing platforms around. And, personally I can't beat the cost savings for calling back to the USA when I'm in the UK. For twenty pounds each month I get global unlimited calling over the combination of Skype and the regular 3 mobile service. When I'm in my apartment I use Truphone on my Nokia E90 or N95 and if I end up somewhere where I don't have a SIM card, I've got MaxRoam.
