Skype for iPhone calling charges postponed until 2011

Excitement over Skype 2.0, which officially permitted for calling over 3G was seemingly squashed when we learned that Skype would be charging for Skype-to-Skype calls beginning later this year in August.

It turns out that that Skype has decided to extend the free calling period of sorts, now permitting end users to make free Skype-to-Skype calls until the end of 2010. Quite obviously, that would mean that the company will then initiate to charge for voice-over calls early next year, at an unknown rate.

The reason for delay has not been specified, but we’re fairly convinced it had nothing to do with making you content.
