Skype possibly coming to AT&T devices in the future
Skype has hinted that video calling may be coming to AT&T devices in the future shortly after announcing their joint venture with Qik that is focused on improving the quality of video chat on capable networks.

Skype and Qik’s joint venture is aimed at integrating their technologies to try and improve Qik’s video calling performance on T-Mobile and Sprint while trying to develop a version of Skype capable of running over Verizon’s new LTE network. Leading the discussion at MWC over the weekend was Skype’s head of consumer product management, Rich Osterloh.

When asked about Skype and a future with the AT&T network, Osterloh said “let’s watch out for some announcements there.” So really he didn’t give us too much, but he definitely didn’t say a future partnership with AT&T was out of the question. Hopefully this joint venture will greatly improve video calling for everybody because it is no secret how poor the quality is over mobile networks. Tell us what you think in the comments below.
