    Still no Skype, when will RIM learn? We don't need 1000 useless apps, Skype is the standard inf instant messaging now across all users, bet it on a phone or a PC, has excellent VOIP video chatting, and yet, RIM didn't make it available somehow to the new BB 10 phones. I don't give a crap about side loaded apps from Android! I will be skipping this POS phone with a half baked OS and enjoying my iPhone 5

    by the way, I am a BB user since 8 years and recently purchased an iPhone 5 for the first time just because someone on these forums said Skype won't be available for the BB 10

    and now after it is released, this confirms it!

    iPhone 5 FTW

    Skype is coming soon.

    Engadget:

    We just received official word from Skype. "We are excited about our plans to bring Skype to smartphones running the brand new BlackBerry 10 platform," said Bob Rosin, VP & GM of Business Development for Microsoft's Skype division. "We are working closely with BlackBerry to ensure Skype runs great on BlackBerry 10 devices. This will give BlackBerry 10 users a great Skype experience, including free voice and video calling, sending instant messages and text messages, sharing photos, videos and files, and calling to landlines and mobiles at Skype's low rates."

    Alec Saunders has said that Skype will be available by the time you can buy the Z10 in the US.

    man sucks to be you, I would have done my own research and verified it before dumping money on what is now the OLDEST OS out there. Have fun!
