Skype to sell ringtones

Posted on Wednesday, Apr 26 2006 @ 19:30 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Skype today starts selling a couple of ringtones through its content store, personal.skype.com. The tones are priced at $1.50 in the U.S. and €1.50 in Europe.
The company plans to quickly expand its ringtone catalog, which could eventually encompass hundreds of thousands of titles. Skype also hopes to license content from other music recording companies and publishers.

The deals mark a major expansion of Skype's ringtone efforts, which got under way last year. Until now, the personal.skype.com store has only offered a few customized, jazz ringtones. But Skype is dabbling more in music. It recently gave users an opportunity to call and leave messages for the band Coldplay.
