For anyone looking to circumvent long-distance charges, iSkoot’s just announced its Skype-based voice-over-IP client for BlackBerry. Shape’s IM+ came out not too long ago, and now we’ve got iSkoot as another option. Nothing wrong with options, right? I’m having trouble seeing the difference between these two services right now… both use SkypeOut credits, both use your data plan, both can run while your computer’s off… Maybe I’m missing something. If you had a bad experience with IM+, iSkoot might invite you to give it another go. In any case, if you’re interested, the software is free to try out while it’s going through beta testing, though you’ll need to buy SkypeOut credits to really get things rolling. Supported devices include the Blackberry 7100, 7500, 7700, and the BlackBerry 8100, 8300, 8700, and 8800.
