Skype Smartphone 'Voiceless VoIP'

Voice-over-IP software Skype last week released a beta version of Skype for Windows Mobile smartphones but left out voice capability. According to a post in the Skype forum by a staff member, voice has been left out for now because Windows Mobile smartphones don't have enough processing power with 200 MHz. Skype requires 400 MHz processors to run efficiently. Additionally, "network connectivity of currently available phones is not sufficient to enable Skype voice calls," the Skype staff posting said.

so why do they even bother releasing it, if the cpu and the network isn't ready. this is just too stupid: a voip application which can't transmit voice on a smartphone.
