The reason why there is no Skype on BB

Hi all,

 

Yesterday I read an article stating that RIM will introduce a "Skypelike application" for devices having OS 7 (and beyond).

 

This might explain why we, BB users have been waiting way too long and without news...

 

Big downside: users as I (having OS 6) will spend the rest of their lives without Skype on their BB's (except US Verizon etc.)...

 

Thanks Skype AND RIM for nothing!!

Grtz,

lvl

Me too please. As I have had my BlackBerry Torch for less than a year I find it unacceptable (if true} that RIM are treating OS6 devices as obsolete.

Hello all,

 

Here is the link:

However: this article is from a Belgian newspaper and therefore is in Dutch!

 

Grtz,
