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

"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.

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
