iSkoot has been selected as winner in the category of Mobile Technology for the 2008 MITX Technology Awards. The MITX Technology Awards, presented by the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange, recognize innovative technologies developed in the New England area, as well as the individuals and organizations responsible for driving these advancements.

iSkoot is the first and only carrier- and consumer-friendly mobile VoIP solution. iSkoot offers a mobile download for Skype and also powers the Skypephone. Unlike the many operator-unfriendly mobile VoIP solutions in the market, iSkoot's mobile Skype solution leverages the circuit-switched voice networks of mobile operators, rather than the data channel, making it a viable choice for operators worldwide, while also optimizing call quality and connection, making it a consumer-friendly and functioning solution with an amazing quality of service.
