Compare Skypephone S2 Deals
The 3 Skyphone S2 takes the original Skyphone a lot further. It features HSDPA - a 3G technology that delivers faster data transfer. For a phone dedicated to VoIP (Voice over IP), Internet speed should, of course, be one of the most important factors in its design, so HSDPA is a welcome addition to this new version.
It uses VoIP - the internet, in short - to send your call for free between Skype users (246 million registered users and rising), rather than the conventional phone network. Other mobile phone networks forbid you to use their networks for VoIP, but the 3 S2 Skypephone comes with 4,000 “Skype minutes” every single month – surely enough even for the busiest user!
This phone is compact and slim (103 x 45 x 14mm) with a 3.2 megapixel camera (upgraded from 2 megapixels), a fine 2.2-inch QVGA screen to display the results, 50 MB of internal memory and a microSD card slot that supports up to 4 GB.
It comes with a 1GB downloading allowance and includes Facebook application directly on the phone and an RSS reader for getting the latest from Stuff.tv. It also integrates your PC Skype contacts into your phone address book and gives you access to "presence" information, call logs and Skype Chat. All in all, an exciting new way of going mobile.
