A company I'm rather fond of is iSkoot. They make the client that works on the SkypePhone that I use when I'm in the UK. Well today VentureBeat is reporting how iSkoot is getting more social, and in my view moving away from simply being a Skype connectivity client making company and into a lot more.
Their acquisition of Social.IM is a move that squarely aims at the crowd that Mig33 seemed to be chasing. The difference. iSkoot has the Voice app already working on devices.
What about Skype? In my view iSkoot is moving away from simply being a supplier of really good technology into being a network of their own.
