3 Skypephone S2

If you are forever using Skype and you like the idea of getting free calls on your mobile, then you need to get hold of the new 3 Skypephone S2 mobile phone, because it has just the kind of benefits you’re after. You’ll be able to take advantage of phoning other Skype users in your phonebook without having to pay anything for the privilege, and that makes this a very useful mobile phone to keep with you.

This is a cool looking handset; it’s black and sleek looking and the makers have managed to fit in a sizeable screen without making the handset itself too large. The S2 has a 2.2 inch colour screen that really makes this mobile phone very good looking and very user friendly.

If you’re a keen photographer then you will like having the 3.2 megapixel camera on board to use while you are out and about, and the internet capabilities of the 3 Skypephone S2 make it easy to share the photos you take with your readers on the internet if you have your own blog.

The S2 is also a must if you are into social networking. It has been designed to be compatible with Facebook so you can access the site quickly and easily whenever the mood takes you. Plus you can use quicklinks to connect to Windows Live Messenger or Google in a flash using HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access).

The layout of the keypad is familiar and yet there are some changes from the previous Skypephone mobile phone model. The keys are made from metal so they feel more robust and they are one of the main reasons why their small size isn’t a problem to use. The 3 Skypephone S2 feels like a phone that is built to last.

But there is even more to the S2 mobile phone than the fact that you can enjoy free texts and phone calls with the other Skype users you have in your phone book. Another exciting feature of the 3 Skypephone S2 is its ability to double up as a USB Modem. It comes pre-loaded HSDPA 3.6 modem drivers, so you can just plug your 3 Skypephone S2 into your laptop or PC and get online straight away.

Whatever you think about the 3 Skypephone S2 mobile phone, this is one versatile handset - jam packed with features, super stylish and easy to use – and is receiving a lot of press attention.
