The Sunday Times picked up the story that 3 is planning to add SkypeOut to their Skypephone package, on top of the existing Skype to Skype and Skype Chat offering. However, buried away in the detail, I noticed that SkypeOut is only supported for international calls. Calls to UK destinations can only be made via the regular 3 service - not the full SkypeOut deal. So, although 3 are provding a way to make cheaper international calls, they're not letting it cannibalise their existing UK calling revenue. It will be interesting to see what the next iteration of 3 Skype looks like and whether it embraces the whole Skype service. There's still no mention of support for SkypeIn numbers to your 3 mobile.
