Skype 2.0 drops for iPhone, enables calls over 3G

Skype 2.0 iPhone

Skype has just released software version 2.0.0 for Apple’s iPhone via an App Store update. Improvements listed for the new version include:

  • Call using your 3G connection. Skype-to-Skype calls on 3G are free until at least end of August 2010, after which there will be a small monthly fee (operator charges for data will still apply).
  • Near CD-quality sound for Skype-to-Skype calls using wideband audio (SILK codec) on iPhone 3GS and 2nd generation iPhone touch.
  • Enhanced call quality indicator.
  • Improved start-up time.
  • Fast access to the dial pad from iPhone home screen.

We’re a little confused as to what the “small monthly fee” for Skype-to-Skype 3G calls is all about but there you have it.
