Skype comes to Palm, finally

Skype comes to Palm, finally


Well, those of you who prefer to use your Palm for everything can now add Skype to your limited list of options. It’s finally here, sort of.

Thanks to intermediary EQO, you can now use a beta J2ME version of Skype on your Palm device, as long as you have Skype up and running on your home PC. That might sound like a lot, but you users of the Treo 600 and 650 know who you are and know how much you love your Palm. Now you can have your Palm and Skype, too.

You can make and receive calls, you can send and receive instant messages, and you can maintain that all-important Contacts list. It’s not even better than the real thing, but it does approach it. And it’s a free download, for Mac or Windows.
