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.

Who's gonna get caught with their hand in the cookie jar?

I can think of a couple of apps that will probably make it over to WP7 Mango. The Xbox 360 hints to it a little. Crackle, Hulu, Comcast's HBO and/or Max mobile apps and a few others seen on the 360. It will be interesting to see the actual list and which developers will have a change of heart about WP7 after the first half of the year.
WP7 is growing, And rapidly at that. I think many devs are realizing they could make some money in that marketplace. With Nokia backing Windows Phone I think you'll see more developers including Windows Phone when they make their apps.
