Skype calls on the Nokia N900.
I will echo a recent post by Kerry Wright of www.wrightaboutnow.com that modern technology and applications such as Skype and Facebook are bringing us closer together regardless of ones location.
Today i chatted to my Mom on my Nokia N900 for over 2 hours and it cost nothing. My Mom was at her computer in Windhoek, Namibia and I was logged into Skype on my N900. Skype is built into the N900, which makes it all the more amazing.
The call came through just like an ordinary phone call. When I am home my N900 is automatically connected to my Sky Broadband via wireless, so the entire call was using my broadband, as if I was at my PC.
Now imagine what a call of this magnitude would have cost had we used good old fashion Telekom or BT?
The fact is, we most certainly would not have spoken for so long. Modern technology is amazing and we should embrace it at every opportunity.
