With Skype on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, you can make and receive calls, and instant message anyone else on Skype, wherever they are in the world. You can also save on international calls and text messages to phones.

With the latest version, you can now call over 3G, and keep Skype running in the background, make video calls to a wider selection of Skype clients and devices, such as Skype for TV.

Users of the Skype iPhone app can now install an update which enables video calling to Skype contacts on more devices, including Skype-enabled TVs. While there still aren't a ton of sets which support the popular voice and video chat app, Skype really only began sidling its way into the living room last year -- so expect more models to appear in 2011.

If the thought of Skype on your TV has the gears turning, head on over to their website to see available models from Panasonic and Samsung -- you can even buy one directly from Skype, along with the required webcams.
