Skype will be coming to Windows Phone


There’s a lot of speculation that Skype won’t be going down the portable Microsoft route in the near future. First off the original quote was that they are “not developing software for the new Windows Mobile software due later this year.” However, have a look at the update on Engadget:

Update: Looks like this quote might’ve been taken out of context. MobileTechWorld followed up and learned that while Dan Neary left out Windows Mobile and Windows Phone from a list of currently supported platforms (which makes sense, since one is dying and the other isn’t out yet), he said Windows Phone 7 "is on the roadmap." The question seems to be more of a "when" than an "if" they’ll start building it.

Sounds a little more positive, it seemed massively silly for Skype to not push out something on a platform that is guaranteed to sell a few units.
