BlackBerry to get Skype in May

Written by David Stellmack

Not only coming for iPhone users

We have been hearing rumors that a version of the popular Skype would make its way to the BlackBerry platform. We received word earlier in the day that this was, indeed, the case for the iPhone, as it would get a Skype application as well as the iPod Touch.

Skype is expected to arrive for the BlackBerry platform in May and the best part of the announcement is that the Skype client for BlackBerry will be free. It is unknown if carriers might try to block Skype access on their networks, as it might eat into profits; but the Skype folks say that actually Skype can drive revenue for other service that carriers provide, such as data.
