    I do not buy the excuse that Skype is to blame for poor Nokia sales. iOS and Android run Skype, and those devices sell just fine.

    The folks at wpcentral do not buy that excuse either. http://www.windowscentral.com/nokia-...ll-shenanigans
    The argument is not that Nokia phones are unsuccessful because they RUN Skype.
    The argument is that Nokia phones are disliked by carriers, because they run WP7 which is owned by MS, which also happened to just buy Skype for 8.5Bn.

    Microsoft's purchase of Skype occurred much earlier than Nokia's decision to run Windows Phone 7.5.

    Skype is even available for Linux. The availability of Skype is not something restricted by Microsoft.
