As you may remember, Skype is now a part of Microsoft and there’s been rumors as to when Skype will be available on Windows Phone 7 devices. There’s a new rumor floating around that there are some private invitations going out to beta test a new Skype app.
The invitation is something along the lines of “Skype for Windows Phone is just around the corner and we’ve teamed up with the Skype folks to help with beta testing. If you are receiving this newsletter directly, look for an invitation in the coming weeks and be on the inside track for what is sure to be one of the hottest new apps on the Marketplace!”
For now, it sounds like it will be a standalone app and not integrated into the OS like Windows Live Messenger and Facebook chat are. This might possibly come in the next version of Windows Phone 7 along with some new devices.
