I haven't looked at it in more than a year. It was ... underwhelming the last time I looked at it, but that has been some time ago.

Also I believe that was when the client had a click-to-talk interface. That was a bit annoying when trying to use the client on an iPaq on a Wireless LAN. The client did work. The limiting factor seemed to be the Wireless network more than the client as I remember.

I don't think there's very much demand for it, though the Pocket PC support forum seems to show activity
Had you ever tried X-PRO?

sigh ... any chance they would share a PocketPC version? I'd like to try interoperability testing with some of the iPaqs I have laying around.

Good news - CounterPath has announced X-Lite 3.0. This is a free softphone, based on eyeBeam 1.5, that offers automatic configuration, presence and instant messaging, and support for both audio and video. It is SIP/SIMPLE-based. Mac and Linux versions are planned for later this year.
It comes with audio, video, presence, im, 2 lines, conference button, record, hold, and proxy, privacy, and presence configuration (p2p or presence agent, custom presence status) are available.
Missing features include high-compression codecs, secure calls, "QoS support", "Outlook integration", 6 lines, and transfer.

I'm getting one error message when I run it, but otherwise it seems to work just fine. Video seems even better than eyeBeam 1.1.
