More Skype hints.


Skype is also expected to announce this week, at CeBit 2004, that a major European home phone maker will integrate Skype's peer-to-peer software into a new line of cordless phones the European company plans to sell. Although final designs aren't yet set, it's likely that the phone will have one-button access to the Skype service, plus a screen to display Skype's instant messaging-like interface.

Skype will also announce later this week a partnership with Plantronics, a major maker of headsets for office and home phones, according to a Plantronics source.

Perhaps an AOL type - cd give-away blitz in the works? If Skype is partnering with a “major European home phone manufacturer” as outlined

I could see a Skype CD version 1.0 included with everyone phone sold in every store - royalty revenue, 3 months enhanced voicemail service included with the phone purchase , free calls to your loved ones anywhere in the world etc…. the demand would be impossible to fill - talk about viral marketing..
