Skype and iSkoot Sign Co-Marketing Deal for Mobile-PC Calling

iSkoot, a start-up based in Cambridge, Mass. offering a mobile-to-PC calling solution, announced a co-marketing deal with Skype.

The iSkoot solution will allow mass market Java-phones as well as high-end Smartphones to place and receive Internet calls through Skype software from their handsets, without the need for PCs, special hardware, or WiFi hot spots. The software enables Skype users to use SkypeOut for inexpensive calls to any phone from their mobile handset.

iSkoot said it has eight patents pending for its unique client server protocol and interfaces, Mobile-to-Skype gateway and integrated presence system. http://www.iskoot.com
