Is a native Skype app coming to BlackBerry 10?
To confirm that, Brian Zubert, Manager of Developer Relations at BlackBerry, sent out a tweet that practically says that a native Skype app is coming. Only problem is that it will apparently run only on BlackBerry 10.2. That is no problem for those with the BlackBerry Z30, which ships with the BlackBerry 10.2 OS installed out of the box. But for the rest of you BlackBerry 10 users, you are going to need to wait for the update to OS 10.2 to run any native version of Skype that may show up in App World.
The global rollout of 10.2 started last week with the update made available for those in Europe, Canada, and the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific region. U.S. BlackBerry 10 users will have to wait for the update, which will seemingly allow them to update a much needed native version of Skype. Having an app like this that BlackBerry owners can call their own not only means that it should work better than the Android port, but it should also make 'Berry owners feel a little more secure about owning a BlackBerry device.

I'm not Windows Phone user, but I have heard that Skype better works on Android than on Windows Phone and it is strange since Skype and Windows Phone both belong for Microsoft. So if it is true and Skype is coming to BlackBerry, then why waste a time with dying BlackBerry, better improve Skype on Windows Phone!
