Skype for Android no longer just for Verizon devices, available in Android Market

Remember awhile back, when you were pouting and pushing out your bottom lip because Skype for Android was only available for Verizon phones? Well pull that lip in, son, or a bird will make a nest on it. (What, your parents never told you that?) Skype is now available in the Android Market for any Android device running Android 2.1 or higher. While it currently works only over wifi here in the states, we won’t complain too much. We’re talking free Skype chat, free Skype to Skype calls, and cheap international calls as well.

Want to check it out for yourself? Of course you do! So be sure to click the application link below to be taken to the page to download and rate Skype’s newly carrier-free baby, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments below!

    Works great on my HTC Desire here in UK.

    One thing that does bug me though, is that to shut it down (without using a task killer) you need to sign out which then clears your password from the login screen even if you’ve ticked the ‘rememeber password’ option. It would be nice to have a simple ‘exit’ button somewhere.

    What a bloated hog — it’s almost 10 MBs, which would be tough to install on my G1, even though I’ve hacked it with Cyanogen and have App2SD. Why is Skype for Android a bigger ap than say, Photoshop for Android or even Documents To Go?
