Nine different Skype-certified phones will be available at Wal-Mart, because it's one way to reach a mass of people, especially here in the United States where less revenue is being generated compared with overseas markets. We think the 911 issue needs to be resolved before Skype or any other service is really going to take off, but we'd love to see it happen. The article from Download Squad simultaneously offers humor about the announcement (do we expect people who are looking for cheap socks and end tables to be buying state of the art phone technology?), humor about shopping at Wal-mart, all while bringing us the news.
