In response to queries about its future product plans, Skype PR issued a statement that indicates the company plans to offer a Skype application to all Android handsets later this year, and it will include a video chat feature. The statement reads, "Skype envisions a world where video plays a larger role in the way we communicate. It’s on computers, televisions, and it will eventually be coming to mobile devices too. We’re betting big on video, and we intend to set the bar on mobile video calling, and it’s something we’re going to do this year. We will be bringing a direct to consumer app to the Android marketplace later this year. This application will be available for all consumers globally to download regardless of carriers." Right now, Skype on Android is limited to Verizon Wireless' handsets. Competitor Fring recently announced a new Android application that offers free video calling. Fring wraps together a number of services, such as Skype, MSN, ICQ, GTalk and other IM platforms into a single application.
