Skype and SanDisk Launch VoIP-Ready Memory Stick

Popular internet telephony provider, Skype, has teamed up with SanDisk in a deal that will let Skype users make free calls from any computer, without needing to download the VoIP software.

SanDisk has agreed to pre-install the Skype software on its newest Cruzer Micro and Cruzer Titanium memory sticks, which will be useable from the USB ports of any computer running Windows 2000 or XP.

The new USB memory drives will range in price from $39.99 to $199.99, depending on capacity (512MB to 4GB). They will come with the added bonus of a free month of Skype voicemail, allowing users to check their voice messages on the go.

This partnership with SanDisk is sure to make the Skype service even more popular among frequent travelers, and even some small business users. It is also a clear attempt to compete with Vonage, which recently launched the V-Phone, another portable memory drive with pre-installed VoIP software.
