Skype Targets Businesses to Ring Up New Revenue - WSJ.com:
"EBay Inc.'s Skype Internet phone unit, on the hunt for new sources of revenue, is making a push into the corporate market.
On Monday, Skype plans to announce a version of its Internet calling software that connects to corporate phone systems. The new software is expected to allow employees to make domestic and international calls using regular office telephones, instead of a headset plugged into a personal computer. Initially, the company will charge about 2.1 cents per minute for calls to cellphones and fixed lines, but calls from computers to phone systems using the Skype software will be free, similar to what it now charges for its consumer service"
