What is needed for this?

Speakers and a microphone or headphones with a microphone. Personally, I did not like the headphones. It's much more convenient to be free during a conversation.
If you want to be seen, there's also a webcam. By the way, the webcam has a built-in microphone.
So, you probably already have the column, you only need to buy a webcam.
Warning. The microphone should be located behind the speakers to make the sound From the speakers did not go into the microphone, otherwise your interlocutor will hear his echo.
If you have a laptop, then you probably already have a webcam and almost certainly have a microphone.

Windows Mobile: smartphone, PDA and PDA

This platform was as if specially created for Skype, provided that your device supports connection to Wi-Fi networks. "Native" software can be downloaded at the official Skype website. Again, it is recommended to use Wi-Fi with an Internet connection for transmission. Also, please note that if there are no questions with "how to talk" with a smartphone and a communicator, in case of a PDA, look where you have "where to listen" and where to "talk."

Wi-Fi with active transmission Ruthless to the battery, and in Windows Mobile it discharges very quickly.
