Verizon will bring Skype to non-smartphone users this year

Launched by Verizon in March for Android and BlackBerry users, Skype Mobile will be available to some of the carrier’s non-smartphone users, too.

According to Verizon, “several 3G Multimedia phones” will be compatible with Skype sometime later this year.

With Skype Mobile, users can make free and unlimited Skype-to Skype calls all around the world. Verizon will update the application soon, with an enhanced UI, and support for more languages (Korean and simple Chinese).
