In 2009 there were rumors that Skype would be available for the Blackberry. We are now in 2012, any news about Skype coming to BB?
Skype is now owned by Microsoft and any new mobile versions are likely to be seen as a strong selling point for the upcoming WinPhone. It seems unlikely that new Skype clients will become available for competing platforms unless someone holds the Skype developers' families at gunpoint.
I have no need for Skype voice in the US unless it can be used to make ultra-cheap or free international calls. I already have unlimited calls included in my monthly plan with Sprint. Why would I need a version of Skype on my BlackBerry like the one Verizon has?
