One small step for VOIP?

Skype Logo

Engadget reports that HTC (the Taiwanese company behind lots of those Smartphones and Pocket PC Phones which end up with somebody else’s logo on them (like the Audiovox SMT 5600, the XDA III, etc) is reaching out to Skype about porting Skype’s VoIP software to the next generation of Smartphones they’re currently working on.

With this you wouldn't even need to find a wifi spot to make calls. You could just use your abbos data connection to call your friend for considerably cheaper prices. You could even do it over an ssh tunnel and through a proxy. Totally secure communications for elluding digital radio scanners. Wonder how the telcos are going to try to stop this.
