If you want to get your hands on 3’s Skypephone S2, the operator’s already taking pre-orders for the device through its website, and it won’t be long til the device is out in the wild (next week online, 1st September in store).
The S2 looks like a series step up from its predecessor, with a 3.2 megapixel camera, and a new carousel interface that sounds like it’s taken more than a passing inspiration from the iPhone’s touch UI. The device has also got better memory – up to 4GB expandable – and a 2.2 inch QVGA screen, as well as all the usual apps like Facebook integrated onto the front of the device.
It’s also retained the best features of the first Skypephone – that’s the free Skype calls and IMs, then. I was rather fond of the first device, despite a few reports that its durability wasn’t up to much, so I’ll be interested to see how its successor shapes up.
