New iPhone app makes 3G Skype calls

Don't ask how long this is going to last, but at the moment, Skype's newly released iPhone app can make calls over the 3G network.
The 3G calls are available for users making Skype-to-Skype calls.

At the moment Skype-to-Skype calls over 3G are free, but the company hopes to charge for them by the end of the year. WiFi calls will remain free.

The new upgrade also includes a call quality indicator to let users know how well their 3G connection can handle their Skype call. When you think of user complaints about AT&T's iPhone 3G network already being too slow and crowded, my guess is the quality indicator will be delivering some bad news.
