Skype iPhone App Will Make Calls Over 3G Soon

Once Apple began allowing VoIP over 3G we heard that iPhone app Fring had the feature built in, allowing for Skype calls over 3G. But we wondered when Skype itself would update their official iPhone app. Their answer? Soon.

You can watch the video above for more details, but according to the Skype blog, there's a reason why we haven't seen the update yet:

You may have seen other apps offering calls over 3G, but we're holding ours back for a little bit longer. Why? So that we can give you the very best audio quality we can. When our 3G-capable Skype for iPhone app is released, it'll let you make calls in wideband audio, giving you greater clarity and fidelity – because that's what you expect from Skype.
