Got an Android OS 2.1 or higher handset? Then you can download Skype for free via the Android Market or from Skype's website at www.skype.com/m. Skype works over WiFi, 3G and even EDGE to make calls over a data connection, that is unless you're in the US where you're currently limited to WiFi.
Skype for Android enables users to:
-Make free Skype-to-Skype calls over WiFi or mobile data connection (GPRS, EDGE, 3G)* to other Skype users anywhere in the world using Skype?s SILK codec for CD-like audio quality. - Make low rate Skype calls to landline or mobile phones - Send and receive instant messages to one or a group of friends on Skype - Synchronize contacts between Skype and the native address book and after synchronization place Skype calls directly from the native address book. - See when Skype contacts are online and available to call or chat - Easily import names and numbers to the Skype application from the native address book - Receive calls on their Skype online number
Skype says that Skype for Android works on compatible handsets running Android OS v2.1 and above and has been tested successfully by Skype on HTC Desire, HTC Legend, Google Nexus One, Motorola Milestone XT720, and Motorola Milestone. It may work on other Android phones, but we can?t guarantee full functionality or compatibility. We?re aware of some problems with the Samsung Galaxy S, and we?re looking to address these in the future.
Any Samsung Vibrant, Captivate, Fascinate or Epic 4G users having issues with Skype?
