Yesterday we reported that Skype for Windows Phone is coming soon, now we have found out that Skype for Windows Phone as an app for download will be available in the first of half of 2012 and it will be integrated into Apollo and beyond. Paul Thurrott of Supersite for Windows confirmed that the documentation that he used for news such as Microsoft and Nokia’s Marketing of Windows Phones in 2012 and LTE support in Windows Phone.
He says “I can now confirm that the software giant’s internal documentation has tagged the first half of 2012 for the release. This is the same documentation I used for the basis for two previous exclusive reports, Microsoft and Nokia’s Plans for Marketing Windows Phone in 2012 and Microsoft’s LTE Plans for Windows Phone.”
And as per Robert Scoble on his Google+ page says that Skype’s CEO Tony Bates says that Skype App for Windows Phone Mango is coming soon and Skype will be integrated into the platform from Apollo and beyond.
He says on his google+ page “Tony Bates, CEO of Skype, says that they are indeed doing an app that’s coming on Mango.” and “a Skype app is coming on Mango on Windows Phone and further integration will be built into the Apollo version of Windows Phone.”
This is indeed a good news for Skype and Windows Phone users. Microsoft please expedite it.
