    This really got me exited! RapidBerry is not a very well known site but they find a lot of interesting things.

    That would be nuts if it's baked into the OS!!

    MSN Messenger is merging with Skype per the email i received from microsoft in my hotmail account.

    sounds very reasonable and likely that this will happen.

    Unfortunately, all this may prove is that the chat feature in Skype is baked in to BB10. It says nothing about voice or video chat. That's fine by me. I rarely use voice or video in Skype, but I use the text chat almost daily at work.

    I keep thinking that so many items are deeply embedded within the OS.
    We heard a bit about this with the browser and being to share webpages directly from within the browser. I bet video calling will be the same way. You have a contact and are able to choose whether you call with BBM video, Skype, or ooVoo. You let the USER decide how they wish to contact that person because they have all the information they need to decide how to contact them.

    What I'm thinking/envisaging is that your contacts contain all the data for skype, oovoo, etc. so that you can choose which way you contact with them. This allows you to not have to go into an app to find that contact. You find the contact and then you choose how you want to contact them because you know on which system (bbm video, skype, ooVoo) they are online. To me, that maintains a beautiful way to flow.

    I think this is why they made sure to push the 'invoke on' framework.

    If my vision is true, this will really improve (and differentiate the BB10 experience from other OSes). Why go into another app only to find out that the person isn't online there??

    Very good find! This makes me feel that it will be there for sure at launch!

    that plus the recent tweet from @blackberryscoop saying that now 19 of the top 20 apps are on BB10. I'd much rather have skype be that 19th app instead of netflix.

    That's the beauty of the kernel. If it's a micro-kernel, then you can simply add on modules. Boom, done.

    We already know Skype (and several other IM services) will be baked in to BB10. They appeared last year.

    Skype? FaceFlow for BB 10 would be a good alternative. Check it out.

    Exactly.. that "code" has been there for a while now. It's honestly not even worth fussing over until it actually arrives. You can take it with a grain of salt given that it first showed up on the PlayBook yet, never materialized as of yet. There is a LOT of unutilized code in those files if you go digging for it.
