    Default More evidence for Skype?

    Hey guys,

    Not sure if this has been posted before (my apologies if it has) but I was just on Twitter and saw this:

    I love the Contacts view in the BlackBerry 10 phone book. Even the little Skype launcher. #TeamBBM #BlackBerry10 pic.twitter.com/hgoS3zbw
    Here's the attached picture too:

    Not sure if this just launches Skype chat or if it's the real deal, but figured I'd post it here and see what the rest of you guys thought.

    Its pretty much the same info that leaked before, the icon and the code in the contact apps.

    It's a pretty much given we'll have Skype with chat (re-branded Live Messenger app). As for audio/video that remains to be seen.

    As long as I get the MSN/Skype conversations portion, I'll be fine. I'm not to interested in the video portion.

    Probably only by me. Seeing as I'm nobody, I have no issues putting it out there. No audio/video. Sorry guys, but I hope I'm wrong.

    Though it hasn't been confirmed, it is very likely that it is just chat and no audio/video. Why do I say this? Because it's literally just the Live Messenger with the new branding (since Microsoft integrated it into the Skype network).

    I can see full Skype for sure but we shall see. MS has the default search on BB10 and MS wants enterprisef clients to stick with Skype. This is just theory ---

    I can not understand MS putting a half baked Skype on BB10 when they already have full apps on Android and IOS.

    Well, we kind of are their chief competition for the whole 3rd horse in the smartphone race thing.
