Skype For Windows Phone Out Soon, Up Next: Windows 8, Xbox 360
Microsoft’s acquisition of Skype in October pointed to an upcoming
app for Windows Phone, not to mention Microsoft executive Joe Belfiore’s
statement that a native Skype application will be ready for Windows Phone in Fall of 2011. Fast forward to present day and the Skype app
for the platform remains to be seen. This time it’s Skype
vice-president of products Rock Osterloh’s turn to comment on the
integration of Skype to Windows Phone and he was quick to add the app is
"coming out soon” in a CES interview.
Osterloh noted that Skype will not only be integrated to Windows
Phone but also to other products such as Windows 8, Xbox 360 and
Microsoft Lync. He refused to give further details on what kind of
integration they are working on.
Osterloh’s "coming out soon” comment regarding Skype’s release is
open to interpretation of how soon it will be, but with Mobile World
Congress scheduled next month, it could be soon enough.
