T Mobile G1 to get Skype access
14 January 2009 — 2:29 PM
Users of the T Mobile G1 could soon have access to cheaper calls and messaging services thanks to a new application from Skype.
In news which may interest those in the market for a new device having recycled used mobiles, Skype Announced this week that a lightweight version of its client is to be made available.
The new software can be downloaded to over 100 different Java-enabled handsets - including those running on Google's Android operating system.
However, as the T Mobile G1 is currently the only handset in the UK to be widely available with the open source Android system - shoppers looking for the latest phone may be inspired to pick up the HTC-built gadget.
Scott Durchslag, chief operating officer of Skype, said: "Nearly half the world's population are mobile phone users today and we know that many people who already use Skype want the option to use [it] on their mobile phones."
It is thought that more phones will be made available in 2009 that use the Android system.
