Dreams of free Skype calls over 3G could soon become a reality for iPhone owners, according to a company blog post Wednesday--and it turns out it's because of the iPad.
"Last Thursday, Apple introduced the iPad, which we're very excited about here at Skype," the company said. "The SDK (Software Development Kit) which Apple provides to developers like Skype, has been upgraded for the iPad. The new version, 3.2, removes the restrictions on calling over 3G, which is great news."
Other apps already claim iPhone 3G call support--notably, iCall and Fring. But Skype claims its upcoming version for the iPhone will enable wideband audio for better clarity and fidelity.
