[maemo-users] FYI - Gizmo (SIP) to Skype gateway

I haven't tried Gizmo, but I can say that I don't think Skype sucks as I have used it exclusively on my 810 to make international calls with more than adequate success.

Best to all!

Well, the nice thing about Gizmo is that is uses free protocols  
(Jabber, SIP) so you can use any Jabber or SIP client to connect to  
its network (like rtcomm). Unlike Skype, which requires you to use  
their client (which, on Maemo, sucks).
