Skype launches Java ME application in beta

Skype Java ME application

Skype has recently launched a Java ME based application to allow mobile phone users to take advantage of the low-cost phone calls and chat with their Skype buddies. Still in beta, Skype mobile “thin” client works on about 50 of the most popular Java-enabled mobile phones from Motorola, Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson.

The problem with the first release, though, is that Skype-to-Skype and SkypeOut calls are initially supported only in select markets: Brazil (Rio de Janeiro), Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Poland, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. We’ve no doubts that will change in the upcoming weeks and months, and in the meantime, if your country is on the list, it is advised you’re on some either unlimited or really low-cost data plan in order to benefit from Skype’s offering…

Full Skype’s release is available from here, and the application can be download from here.
