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,

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!
