google cant buy everything they feel like… they already have gtalk etc… this significantly boosts Microsoft's internet presence and allows them to have a standout feature on many of their products

Yeah google should have but didn't, Microsoft did, so just move on.

"Skype vice president of products, went on record as saying that the team is working on a Windows Phone version"...ya think?
MS owns Skype...if he didn't his @$$ would be in a sling.

That I can't download Skype in my WP7 is puzzling to me so I'm glad I can now soon do. Not that it matters much since I use Tango.

About time! Especially because MS f**king owns Skype

Skype will take time to come out. Perhaps on Apollo update. As this is not a standalone app. It is an integration in WP OS Itself.

i always wondered why they didn't release an app earlier. wth is going on when ms owns skype and they never bothered to make a timely release, granted 1st gen phones were lacking font cameras

Microsoft are quick at announcing things but slow at actually putting it out
