    Well it's still mentioned on the skype page (Skype Coming to BlackBerry Smartphones in May - About Skype)
    It clearly says that it should be available VERY soon.

    You see what happens when investors take over companies... what a sac of s-h-i-t! Anyways, whenever google voice will be released it will destroy "Frankenskype' or Skype or whatever the h-e-l-l they wanna call it. It's a pity because I like skype and have been using it from day one!

    One thing is for sure, Google has been consistent since day one with their apps, or at least try to be as consistent as possible.
    What in the eff is FrankenSkype??

    Oh, I sent a message back to our dear Kaarel (Mr. Skype):

    Dear Kaarel,

    Thank you for your reply, but various website (including skype!) talk abou the release in May. No further information.

    It would be very good if we (blackberry users) can find proper information regarding an estimated release date and delay so all blackberry users are properly informed.

    Also the link for downloading skype software for blackberry, isn't software for blackberry (which I found out during installation on the blackberry) while the site clearly talks about blackberry (Skype Coming to BlackBerry Smartphones in May - About Skype).

    Lots of users talk about the skype announcement of May but no one knows what the actual plan is. Even rumours about skype can be found which isn't very good.

    With kind regards,

    Skypes reply: .................Nothing

    It's ridiculous that Skype hasn't managed to put out a reasonable application yet. I have used iSkoot in the past, but honestly, the call quality is bad so I stopped.

    Wouldn't you think that this is the next logical platform for Skype? That it would grow their business tremendously?

    Well I'm afraid there WON'T be a skype for BB. I lost my confidence in Skype. They still have the release in May on their website!! maybe May of 2033. No skype for me anymore.
