Windows Phone 7 does not have significant market share. Apple, Google, RIM and Nokia have the lion's share.
Dear Microsoft & Skype ...
I have been a Windows CE, Windows Mobile and now a Windows Phone user for as long as I can remember. More recently I started using Skype (less than 2 years back). I cant use it on my phone yet, even thought, just about everybody else I know can.
Now you have merged/been-acquired and I feel embarrassed that I still cant use Skype on my phone. There is also no communication from either company/division as to why or when this is going to be available.
One way to ensure that Windows Phone never takes market-share is to get your existing users to leave ship because of lack of common applications like Skype. So I urge that you dont let that happen. Please provide a clear roadmap about the availability of this application on the Windows Platform, else, that is just what will happen, the partnership with Nokia notwithstanding.

Heres a simple answer for you guys, when hell freezes over!!!
It's pretty sad when they can't even get the mobile app for the platform their parent company has on the market out the door.
At this rate it makes the Duke Nukem Forever development time look normal, and that took 12 years!!!

Yes, but do Apple, Google, RIM or Nokia own Skype?
No, they don't, Microsoft does. That means market share for Windows Phone is irrelevant, not only that but the app had been annouced while Mango was still in development.
We hare on: Support Network Beta Social Support for Skype users
No one answer done by this kind of "support"
We wait for an answer!!
This answer may be on February 2012 or on January 2013 or never or now, but please
tell us something!
