Skype is now available on Windows Phone 7. FINALLY! What took Microsoft and Skype so long?

Note that this is just a Beta version of Skype and is available to Windows Phone 7.5 users. And it would be good if your Windows Phone 7 has a front facing camera. Users can download directly from their Windows Phone or at the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace.

I tried the Skype Beta on the Nokia Lumia 800. Since there’s no front facing camera, the other party can only see view from my rear facing camera. Everything works pretty alright. But a little buggy. Well, there’s a reason why it is still in beta.

The full version will be made available in April. Let’s hope they integrate Skype into the phone just like Facebook and Twitter.
