Personal Technology

Cell phone competition?

The Swedish firm Skype Technologies announced yesterday that it is releasing a mobile version of its peer-to-peer technology which allows computer users to make toll-free calls anywhere in the world. The new product works on Wi-Fi digital assistants. What (if anything?) will this do to cellphone pricing?

Thanks, Dan Gilmore.
