iSkoot recently announced the launch of their new iSkoot v1.1 mobile application for Windows Mobile handsets. The new mobile application supports all Windows Mobile 5 and 6 handsets, bringing its advanced feature set to over 200 additional devices worldwide.
iSkoot v1.1 for Windows Mobile empowers Pocket PC and Smartphone community members to reach out to their business colleagues and contacts all over the world anytime, from anywhere, using Skype on their mobile handset. The iSkoot application offers push-of-a-button inbound and outbound Skype-to-Skype calling capabilities, as well as instantaneous Skype chat with advanced features such as Skype emoticons and chat template options.
This newest release from iSkoot supports many of the highest-selling PDA devices in the global marketplace - including the Motorola Q, Samsung Blackjack, T-Mobile Dash, Palm Treo 750 and HTC Wizard - and compliments their existing suite of supported platforms, which already includes BlackBerry, Symbian S60, UIQ, Palm and J2ME. Windows Mobile is a leading OS in the global market, offered by 48 device makers and 125 mobile operators in 55 countries. Shipments are expected to surpass 40 million units worldwide by 2010.
How iSkoot Works
iSkoot v1.1 for Windows Mobile is now available for free at iskoot.com. Windows Mobile users can simply download iSkoot's thin-client application to their devices, sign in to their Skype account, and start making and receiving calls and chatting with their online Skype contacts. When a user selects a contact to call, the iSkoot solution connects the call to Skype so that the user only pays for air time on the mobile phone. If the user makes a SkypeOut call, it works the same way, but the user also pays for SkypeOut minutes, just as if the call were made from a PC. When a user receives Skype calls on his or her smartphone, SkypeOut charges also apply.

Robo for Pocket PC
HeroCraft has just released a new puzzle game for PDA and Smartphones called Robo.Move the stones and use the bombs to explode the laser cannons which block robo's way out of the maze.
The love makes people commit imprudences, follies and other stupid things. Will anybody in his right mind risk his health and life, get under the rays of laser guns, break legs in the stone conglomerations, carry dreadful bombs and wander in fatal mazes? Love is a virus; and there are no walls which can stop it. Even robots can't resist it. You are able to become a participant of this unusual love-story. Try to add some logic and consistency in this bustle of the hot cybernetic passion, overcome together with Robo all thinkable obstacles, walking through snow storms, scotched deserts and cold mountains. It is known that only humans intellect could rescue machines that are going mad.
So Robo has to save Eny, who is kidnapped by evil Discharger and now held in the underground compound, protected by lasers. In order to move, our hero has to block laser beams that guard all passageways or destroy laser cannons. This objective can be reached by moving stones to block laser beams, using bombs to explode laser cannons or (for the gaming Einsteins) making cannons destroy each other. The game rules are very simple, but the game itself is not, because bombs and stones are very scarce. Are you ready to use your brains to get out of this situation?
Robo is available here for $12.85.
