Skype For Windows Phone Allegedly Still On Track For This Fall
Initial Skype plans for Windows Phone go way back to this year’s MIX when an application was promised for the Redmond platform. Since then Microsoft acquired Skype for $8.5 billion in cash, a deal that was not long ago officially finalized.
It appears that the application which will bring video calling to Windows Phones is still on track for a release this year, according to recent reports. It’s still unknown whether it will be a stand-alone application of a software update with the Skype bit deeply integrated (but according to what we already know, it won’t have such a huge People’s Hub integration at the beginning). As for the wave-one and two devices without a front-facer, you’ll hopefully be able to do voice calls.
