If you’re an Android using Skype-lover, the day you’ve been waiting for has come. The iron-fisted grip Verizon Wireless previously had on Skype has been relinquished and the popular internet communication application is now available in the Android Market for all devices running 2.1 or higher. With the addition of Android, we are pleased that Skype is now available on three of the most popular mobile platforms today: Android, iOS and Symbian,” said the company’s product manager Mark Douglas. There is however, one catch: “In the US, Skype for Android works over WiFi only.” So sad. What do you think? Is Skype still useful for you if you have to be within range of a Wi-Fi network?
