Free Skype App Now Available On Nokia Symbian Phones

Nokia's picked the beta version of the Skype app up off the floor, dusted it off, and granted it a shiny new spot in its Ovi Store, for all Symbian^1 phones. Your network can kiss goodbye your money.

It works over Wi-Fi or a data connection on these handset models: Nokia E71, N96, N85, 5320, 6210 Navigator, 6220 classic, N78, N79, E63, E66, N82, E51, N95, N95 8GB, N81, N81 8GB, E90, E72, 5800 XpressMusic, N97, N97 mini, X6, and the 5530.

While it only works on Nokia handsets at the moment, Skype plans on launching the app on other manufacturers' Symbian phones, with Sony Ericsson next in line to get the free Skype-to-Skype calls, IM ability and sharing files functionality. It's available now through the Ovi Store, however whenever I click on it it says the item is no longer available. First day nerves, I bet. [Nokia Conversations]
