Download Skype for the Android smartphone

Android smartphone users can now download an application for Skype thanks to the Voice over internet Protocol (VoIP) provider’s partnership with Verizon Wireless.
Using the VoIP service Skype, people who have Google's Android phone can make a range of free calls either between computers or to landlines. These include low cost calls abroad.
Skype teamed up with Verizon Wireless over the winter of 2009/2010 to offer a multitude of unlimited talk plans at low prices. If you have a data plan, Skype-to-Skype calls are free, but calls to wireless or landline numbers use your voice plan minutes.
The Android is just one of many smartphones to benefit with talk plans available on 12 different smartphones with release scheduled for more handsets in the future.
The download can also be accessed on the Blackberry smartphone.
Verizon’s executive director of business development, Jennifer Byrne, said: “These international rates are great for talking to family members who might live abroad.
“Right now you might even use them to chat with fans around the world about the Football World Cup."
In addition to English, Skype mobile will also be available in Korean, Spanish and Chinese. The new version will have a drop down menu with flags which indicate the international dialling numbers.
