New Skype for Windows gets off ground

Elinor Mills at CNET:

Skype is set to formally release on Thursday the latest version of its voice over Internet Protocol service, which includes call forwarding and downloadable ring tones, pictures and sounds.

Skype for Windows 1.4, first available in beta in August, lets callers forward incoming Skype calls to another Skype account for free. Users can also forward calls to up to three landline or mobile numbers for as little as 2 cents a minute, depending on the country, according to the company’s chief marketing officer, Saul Klein.

Users can personalize the service by downloading pictures, sounds and ring tones. The new Skype version is designed to make it easy for people to import contacts from Microsoft Outlook directly into their Skype buddy lists and to make one-click calls to numbers and names from Internet Explorer and Outlook.

I don’t know if I’m ready for Skype ring tones. More details by following the link and there will undoubtedly be a press release later.

UPDATE: Here’s the full press release.
