Skype CEO Tony Bates said that the company, which is owned by Microsoft, is working to deliver a version of its VoIP calling service to Microsoft's Windows Phone platform. Speaking to Robert Scoble at the Consumer Electronics Show, Bates said that Skype is developing an application for Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, but is also working to "further integrate [Skype] into future Windows Phone OS's." Bates didn't provide more specific details about when the Mango app would become available, nor when any "further integration" would take place. Microsoft indicated to Phone Scoop that news of WP7's roadmap would be shared in the coming weeks.
