The preeminent voice-over-IP application, Skype, should be finding its way to the iPhone at CTIA Wireless coming up this week, and a BlackBerry version is due to drop in May, presumably for the Wireless Enterprise Symposium.Third-party solutions for both platforms have existed for awhile (Nimbuzz updated recently for iPhone, IM+ has been around on BlackBerry for ages), but there’s nothing quite like native support. We had heard hints that the iPhone would be getting a Skype app, but the BlackBerry support is a new and welcome surprise. We’ll be sure to give Skype on iPhone a go at CTIA Wireless tomorrow, but for a closer look now, check out CNET’s sneak peek.
Meanwhile, those with a Windows Mobile handset are laughing all the way, with beta 3.0 launching recently with SMS and file transfer capabilities. The above video gives you the full run-down.
