Skype Clarifies Position on Client for Windows Phone 7
A recent report indicated that Skype has no plans to develop a VoIP application for Microsoft's upcoming Windows Phone 7 platform. When asked to confirm this information, Skype said that its position on future platform support — and specifically for Windows Phones — has not changed. A Skype spokesperson said in an email to Phone Scoop, "In February, we withdrew our Skype Lite and Skype for Windows Phones apps because they didn't offer the experience our customers had come to expect. We rigorously explore opportunities presented by new mobile platforms, and Windows [Phone] 7 is no exception. However, we don't publicly discuss future platform developments, and have no further information to offer at this time." Dan Neary, Skype's Asia Pacific Vice President, did note that the company is focusing efforts on developing for the iPhone, Android and Symbian platforms.
