Microsoft has released a preview version of Skype for its Windows Phone 8 platform. Skype for WP8 makes some key improvements compared to earlier versions, such as the ability to run in the background and integration with the native People Hub. It also merges the Windows Live Messenger buddy list with the Skype contact list for instant messaging. The preview is available for download from the Windows Phone Store for WP8 handsets. AT&T kicked off sales of WP8 handsets last week. T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless are making Windows Phone 8 devices available this week.

Full integration of Skype with Windows Live Messenger and into Windows 8 is the one thing I've been most looking forward to after Microsoft purchased Skype.
