Skype on K3

Hi All,

I posted a separate thread on SIP client.

What I found most useful on my son's ipod touch is the Skype client. ipod does not have 3G so is connected to wifi. With a earphone and speaker plugged in, it works great as a telephone device when I am home with wifi coverage.

I think this would be really great to have on the Kindle.

I noticed that there is a Skype 2.2 beta for Linux:
http://www.skype.com/intl/en-us/get-...omputer/linux/

for several different Linux distributions. The technical requirements are:
Hardware requirements
1 Ghz processor or faster.
256 MB RAM.
100 MB free disk space on your hard drive.
Microphone and speakers or headset.
Internet connection broadband is best (GPRS is not supported for voice calls).
Video card driver with Xv support.

Software requirements
Qt 4.4.0 D-Bus 1.0.0
libasound2 1.0.18
PulseAudio 0.9.16 (optional)
BlueZ 4.0.0 (optional)

Technical details
Version 2.2.0.35

I don't know if it is even possible to port this.

Thanks,
James
