One of the best features of Skype is that you can use it on your iPod, iPhone, Blackberry, or Windows Mobile phone. I'm a die hard Windows Mobile guy, and I use my new iPod a lot too. I have the Skype app on both, and I use them to make calls anywhere I have WiFi, and text on Skype anywhere I have my network's internet. With WiMax (that's 4G for those of you that are uninformed) making a huge step into the cellular phone market, this is bound to be even more popular.

When is the anticipated date to release an Android version? Status: Planned does not mean anything and why you can not allow SIP. Previous thread mentioned that you are trying to prevent fraud, but you can adapt other SIP provider to authenticate the users by providing ID's if you are unable to match the registered address from their IP address.

We are currently investigating a number of options for the Android platform, but a native solution is not available at this time. We have a number of Android fans internally that are also excited to see a solution. In the meantime, you can always leverage our Call Connect for SMS solution to initiate calls from your mobile device:
I NEED mobile support. This is my only motivation for pursuing this techonology. I have signed up with Voxox temporarily and if there is not a way to use it with my Android, I will be cancelling this service.
Would love to use this on Windows Phone 7!! Happy Holidays and good luck in the new year.
Don't forget Android mobiles!
Well...correction, actually. Many of Voxox's networking features are separate from its SIP support. I was forgetting that just because my phone supports a similar feature set natively doesn't mean they all do.
+1 to betatomic.
Allowing SIP on customer devices would take care of this feature, without the need of creating software for each and every mobile device.
Calling over WiFi for sure!
