Skype phone v2, first glimpses

As a journalist I love Skype. Actually, I should more accurately say, as a cheapskate I love Skype.

So, naturally, I’m a little excited about 3’s announcement of its new Skype phone. The company has just leaked the first images and a little bit of spec information.

It’s your standard brick shaped phone (can you tell I’m refusing to acknowledge the candybar term). And stacks up well – it’s 103 x 45 x 14mm and has a a 2.2-inch screen. There’s a reasonable battery and good memory if you buy the 4 gig card.

According to Pocketlint, The S2 wil be offered from free on mix and match monthly tariffs and will cost “under £70,” so presumably £69.99 on a pay as you go basis.

    Why are you refusing the 'candybar' term? It's much more accurate in describing today's handsets, given that bricks are typically rather thick, and candybars are not.
