[IPdrum Mobile Skype Cable cooperates with Skype allowing a mobile phone to connect to a user's Skype service no matter where the call originates.]
Staff, Mobile Tech News -- IPdrum, a VoIP solutions provider, introduced the IPdrum Mobile Skype Cable consisting of an interconnecting cable between a mobile phone and a PC and software. The IPdrum Mobile Cable connects Skype to a mobile telephone via the mobile telephone network allowing Skype users worldwide calling for local rates.
With IPdrum and Skype, a user can call free of any long distance charges, world wide from his/her mobile phone. IPdrum has developed patent-pending technology to connect the traditional telephony systems with peer-to-peer (P2P) telephony. IPdrum Mobile Cable enables the user to Skype from his/her mobile no matter where he/she is.
How it works:
Hook up a mobile phone using a USB cable to your PC that keeps an open connection to Skype. Next, place a call to that handset using another mobile phone from anywhere and the IPdrum software sets up a connection between that mobile and your Skype service via the mobile phone attached to the PC. The cost for calls anywhere in the world using IPDrum's software include local charges for the call between the two mobiles. One note, if you call a non-Skype user there will be additional charges as only Skype to Skype calls are free.
IPdrum announced their product at CommunicAsia in Singapore on June 14. Their press release said the IPdrum Mobile Skype Cable will be available mid-August at a suggested retail price of $60-$80 depending on the type of mobile to be connected.
