Skype not available for WM Phone

Most of you should have heard the news that Skype is no longer supporting Window Mobile Phones. The download link to install Skype on your WM Phone has been removed from the Skype website. However if you have install Skype and Skype Lite on your Window Mobile Phone, you can continue to use it throughout 2010.

Skype is now on the lucrative iPhone Market and the Symbian Market. I guess Skype pull out of the Window Mobile Market as the WM Software sometimes will hang the Skype Application on WM Phone.

Why can’t I download Skype Lite or Skype for Windows® phones?

Unfortunately, Skype Lite – a version of Skype for your mobile phone – and Skype for Windows phones are no longer available for download from our site.

We’ve chosen to withdraw Skype Lite and Skype for Windows phones because we want to offer our new customers an improved mobile experience – much like the version that has proved so popular on the iPhone, and which is now available on Symbian phones.
