Nokia N800 Gets Skype

Nokia today revealed a software update for the N800 Internet tablet that adds Skype calling as well as the latest version of Adobe's Flash. The former extension turns the normally browsing and e-mail oriented device into an Internet phone wherever it can find a Wi-Fi hotspot and lets users either chat for free with other Skype users as well as make SkypeIn or SkypeOut calls from and to real-world numbers with Skype's normal service plans. The process doesn't require a PC to setup the account, according to Nokia.

Flash is similarly upgraded, running version 9 as seen on desktop computers; the feature makes the N800 a better fit for YouTube and other sites which can use the extra speed and features for web animations and videos. Support for larger memory cards, battery life refinements, and several other minor upgrades are part of the package, which is available as a free update from the company's N800 website.
