    Default Skype available for the Storm 2?

    I recently sent an email to Skype asking if there was anything in the works for Blackberry users. By all accounts the Storm 2 is going to be wifi capable and Skype would be a great app to have. The good news is Skype does appear to be headed the Blackberry. The bad news is no specific time frame was provided so it could be a long time until it is available.

    The response I received from Skype

    Thank you for inquiring about Skype for Blackberry devices.

    We are aware of the demand for a Skype release that for Blackberry and are working on it. Unfortunately at the moment we cannot provide you with the exact timeframe, but we are trying to release Skype for BlackBerry as soon as
    possible.

    I got the same feedback couple of months ago. Somewhere in this forum the same feedback is posted as well... Looks like standard answer to anyone asking for Skype for BB...

    Default Hope they do soon!

    I hope they come through and release the app for BBs. But Im sure the carriers are not too excited about it, I guess time will tell.

    This may be a ******** question, but I wanted to know how would skype work on bb with kno camera in the front? How would the person ur talking to be able to see your face? Or would skype for bb be way different from how it operates on the computer?

    Skype doesn't have to use video as far as I know. I know I've spoken to consultants that use it for long distance calling.

    Yeah. I was under the impression that the whole point of Skype was to be able to make calls to and from anywhere in the world for dirt cheap.

    I would hope skype to skype would be free on phones and wouldn't use your minutes.

    Also, Net Neutrality might come into play with this as well.

    My understanding is Skype allows Skype-to-Skype calls for free. Google Voice does not.

    Also, Google Voice allows one number for a multitude of devices. So you can give out your Google Voice number, and if you're at work they'll call your work number, between 5 and 6 your cell, 6 until bed your home, then just go nowhere if you wanted.

    Skype does not do that. AFAIK.
    Scan the barcode for my Droid's PIN number. I recommend "Bar Code Scanner" since it seems to work real well.

    How do I Google something?

    Quick question on data handling on Blackberry that could be very relevant to Skype -- does ALL mobile data on a Blackberry go through RIM's servers, or just the email? If it's all, I think there could be real problems with VOIP implementation.
