Skype’s long-overdue official app for the iPhone is a reality today (with Blackberry in May), but it comes with a catch: you’ll only be able to use it over Wi-Fi, so no 3G or EDGE calls.

No word on when they’ll be coming stateside, but Samsung’s S5600 and S5230 are decent looking touchphones with 3MP cameras and “gesture lock” — think speed dial for touchscreens.
