Skype is to launch two new premium services, and has already provided beta versions. Skype customers can now purchase phone numbers so they can be reached by non-Skype users with ordinary fixed or mobile phones, and the company is also planning to add a video conferencing service.

Under the SkypeIn service, users can buy up to three numbers currently available in eight countries: Denmark, Finland, France, Hong Kong, Norway, Sweden, the U.K and the U.S. A three-month subscription costs 10 (US$13) and a full year 30, the company announced Friday.
