VoIP Ready Memory Stick Launched By Skype and SanDisk
Fed up of downloading Skype software on your PCs, then you have come to the right place. Skype and SanDisk Corporation have entered into an agreement which would enable Skyoe users to make free calls and chat on Windows based computers without having to download the software. The Skype software would come pre-loaded on SanDisk's newest Cruzer Micro and Cruzer Titanium lines of Skype certified U3 enabled smart drives. What you all need to do is insert the smart drives into your computer's USB port and start making calls.
The drives would be featuring the Skype logo on the packaging and would include one free month of Skype voicemail for mobile users to get messages from Skype calls even on the move. The users of Skype would be able to carry their Skype account completely with their contacts, settings and preferences and make calls from cyber cafes or hotels. The smart drive is priced at US$39.99 to US$199.99 in Europe and U.S and is available in capacities of 512 MB, 1GB, 2GB and 4GB.
This move would certainly increase the popularity of Skype among people who are always on the move and would certainly offer competition to Vonage's recently launched V-phone.
