Skype has released a new version of its mobile client for Symbian devices, which features improved call quality and support for smartphones running the new Symbian (formerly known as Symbian^3), such as the Nokia N8, C7, C6-01 and the soon-to-be-released Nokia E7.
The new Skype client includes SILK, Skype’s high quality audio codec, to make sure that calls sound great even if you’re on a low-bandwidth connection. This update also includes some improvements to the UI — it’s now easier to add contacts, add a photo to your profile, set a mood message, and navigate throughout the app. The UI also better fits larger screens now.
You can use Skype for Symbian to IM, make free Skype-to-Skype calls, call and text phone numbers via Skype’s SkypeOut service and share pictures, videos and other files from your smartphone.
