Since the invention of the phone has been more than a hundred years, and prices for telecom services has always marched in step with the development of modern technology. It is quite possible that there will soon die out companies that provide mobile communications in Standard GPRS / reason – the latest revolutionary solution from Nokia – model N97. Easy to implement and revolutionary in its audacity. It has long been a software that allows almost free to negotiate between any two (three, four, and so forth) by subscribers. It is based on a system of peer-to-peer (literally "equal – equal") program Skype. For a long time it has worked exclusively from one computer to another, eliminating interference phones, communicators and other technical stuff.
Then there were a lot of open source projects (eg, SIP), capable of be installed on phones, but not gained popularity due to the users. Not everyone given to understand the device are not so simple program. Finally, not so long ago, Nokia and Skype have signed an agreement according to which since the third quarter of 2009 on all Nokia phones will be released N line with official preinstalled client Skype. By implementing an external VoIP (Voice on IP)-Telephony will be no different to an outside user from ordinary phone calls. Skype client will be integrated in the phone book, which will show status users on the network. Regarding the client may be noted that it would allow not only text messaging, but also to make VoIP-calls, using a network of EDGE, 3G and Wi-Fi. In addition to calls between users will function is available SkypeOut, that is, calls to fixed numbers, prices for which the corporation Skype has always been more than loyal.

Another manufacturer mobile phones, Sony Ericsson, announced at the conference Mobile World Congress, in the Xperia X1 smartphone will also have a special application from Skype. Kai-Fu Lee is full of insight into the issues. However, smartphones, and phones – are two different things. Nokia's flagship line once again proves its advantage in the industry of mobile telephony, always keeping one step ahead of their competitors.
