Skype is planning to launch its own mobile handset this month, following in the footsteps of Apple, and the all but confirmed mobile phone from Google. The handset is said to have been developed by iSkoot and is equipped with multimedia capabilities and high-speed data for mobile Web browsing (3 Mobile is a 3G network only, at least in Australia). A big button above the regular keypad activates Skype's service for long-distance and international calls, and Skype buddies and regular phone contacts can be displayed.
