Skype Hype?

From the renegade Kazaa, which continued the Napster legacy, Niklas Zennstrom and gang have come a long way.
As this article shows, Skype is single handedly driving the mobile VOIP , as well as the Wi-Fi phone revolution. First with the tie-up with handset manufacturer Motorola and now with the German operator E-plus.

What this would mean for the mobile world, is that VOIP or Wi-fi based telephony is here to stay, and is going to give network (CDMA, GSM....) based telephony, a scramble for its money.
