Skype For Android Is Here – It’s Free And Works Over WiFi And 3G (But Not Everywhere)

It took a while, but Skype has now released an application for Android smartphones, enabling users to make free calls to other Skype users and send and receive IMs, one-to-one or with a group. The Android app works over WiFi and 3G, and comes at a cost that’s hard to beat – gratis.

Big sidenote: you can only make calls over WiFi in the United States, and the app is not available in the Android Market in China or Japan.

Not much to add to the news, apart from the fact that you’ll need a phone with Android 2.1 or above to be able to download the app, which you can do from Android Market or by visiting Skype.com/m from your phone.
