Im planning to buy a WP but I want an apollo one which can be released next year (a way too long) cause as we all know, we cant update mango-tango to apollo.. Not unless its possible..
Where is the app for Blackberry.
I had to buy a cheap compatible Nokia just to run the Skype app, which is OK, but why not Blackberry. This is not rocket science so what's the problem.
phone technology is too high, just attach one of a HTC, Iphone or a Samsung galaxy
i don't knowif when it using, but i think it's one of the best phones...

I'm in two minds about this. While it should have been simple to create an application for Skype on WP7, it's even better to have things integrated fully with the OS, like they do with FB and Live! services.
So long as I get it on my Trophy, I'll be happy. Don't care about video calls, just want Skype!
A friend of mine from Dubai has an HTC HD2 phone that runs Windows Phone 7 and has a Skype app. The HTC HD2 was originally made for Windows Mobile. It was also able to run Android and then Windows Phone 7. He was able to load and run the CAB file so I am sure it was sideloaded. I don't really think he knows what he has (a hacked phone).
Nice-Guy, 15 Jan 2012What's appolo?Apollo is the next update of WP7 that make WP7 phone with Dual-Core, HDMI and different chipsets works nice with the Phone-OS...
i need it on my blackberry 9780 too!!
The keyword is "integrated". Yes you can download a standalone Skype app for Win and Mac. For smartphones Android, iOS, Symbian, Blackberry OS and Skype lite for Java feature phones. Ironically not yet available for WP7 as standalone app either.
Cod3rror, 15 Jan 2012Nokia N900 disagrees with you.I was thinking the same, my old n900 had great skype integration, every time I pressed a contact I could call using any of the communication option the phone had, including SIP and skype
Is it really difficult for them to do this?
On the front page it says this:
Although Microsoft is still not giving a proper release date it is expected to arrive in Apollo.
Shouldn't Apollo be april?
AnonD-24971, 15 Jan 2012hasnt every other OS had this for ages??Other platforms have had an app for it, this is integration into the OS. Unsurprising that this is gonna happen really, after the Skype buyup.
