    Whatever happened to this? I heard a few months ago it was supposed to come out in May or something?

    Yes, there was a press release announcing a lite Skype client would be available for the BlackBerry.... soon.

    Since then, eBay, the owners of Skype, have been involved on court action that may prevent them from going any further in Skype development.

    Stay tuned, but it may take a while to play itself out in the courts.

    In the mean time, check out the iSkoot Skype client.

    IM+ for Skype has a beta out now that does VOIP via wifi (for wifi-enabled BBs). It has some quirks to it (works more like a walkie-talkie) but there is finally an option coming that could bring VOIP/Skype to BB. There's more info in the 3rd party apps forum.

    I have been using iskoot and found that it lags significantly. I am looking for a faster service. Also, I was wondering, is the calling feature on Skype still free with iSkoot? Thanks everyone! Still a bit new to posting, but hopefully I'll be more active now!
