CNET News Daily Podcast: Skype coming to Verizon phones

Today's episode is phones, phones, phones! Lots of mobile stuff going on right now, including the inclusion of Skype to Verizon customers. Tune in to get the scoop.

Lots of mobile news in today's podcast, since we're knee-deep in news from the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona. One of the biggest pieces, besides the Windows 7 Phone unveiling over the weekend, is that Skype is finally coming to Verizon users on a handful of phones. This will bring some 3G VoIP call goodness to users--that is, as long as they have one of the compatible handsets. We also talk about Larry Ellison's super fast boat, updated numbers on both U.S. broadband penetration, as well as cell phone subscriptions worldwide.
