Cell phone users in Europe can look forward to VoIP and televisions, coming to their handsets soon
If, until now, most smartphone users have associated mobile Internet with writing e-mail, surfing the Web, or sending pictures, they could easily get hooked on cheap VoIP calls.
Several European groups are currently testing new mobile VoIP services that could radically change how cell phone customers make calls in the future. Skype Technologies and mobile phone operator Hutchison 3 Group are in the starting blocks to launch a commercial mobile VoIP service. Hutchison will provide Skype's mobile VoIP client in a range of high-end smartphones that have Session Initiation Protocol capability and run the Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system.
