3 has become the only operator to offer Skype on the fantastic Nokia N97. The offer, which has only been available since last Friday is the first time that 3 has offered Skype on one of the top hitting handsets in the market.
Reports by Mobile earlier in the year state that 02 and also Orange were extremely angered by Nokia?s decision to make Skype readily available on Nseries handsets. The obvious concerns are over potential lost revenue from offering free calls.
Whilst there is still no availability date from 02 for the N97, Orange is said to be receiving shipments this week. The contracts for the N97 with Skype on 3 will start from a very attractive £35 a month, including voicemail and 300 minutes/texts. Internet can be added for just £5 per month. As an alternative option you can purchase on pay as you go for £319.99.
