Detailed Description

Update

iSkoot extends the reach of PC Calling by allowing users to make and receive PC Calls using only their regular cell phones.

With iSkoot, a mobile phone user gets the power of PC Calling as part of their normal communications capabilities. iSkoot eliminates the need for special hardware, headsets, microphones, broadband connections, USB phones and even PCs, and consumers don't have to go looking for a WiFi hot spot.

iSkoot has an extended partnership with Skype. This follows iSkoot's successful collaboration with Skype and mobile operator 3 for the global launch of the 3 Skypephone, the first ever mass-market Skypeâ„¢-enabled mobile handset.

iSkoot offers Skype-branded mobile software to mobile network operators in Argentina, Greece, Israel, Norway, South Africa, Switzerland and Turkey. These products deliver mobile Skype voice functionality based on circuit switch-to-VoIP technology. iSkoot delivers an end-to-end client/server/gateway solution that leverages the ubiquitous circuit switching infrastructure of the traditional voice network.
