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. Our focus is on providing a rich user experience that allows you to enjoy free Skype-to-Skype and low cost calls as easily on the move as you do at your desktop.We felt that Skype Lite and Skype for Windows phones were not offering the best possible Skype experience.
Hey there – Mat’s comment above pretty much nails it. It’s been very difficult for us to make the experience consistent across a wide range of Windows devices. However, we have a partnership in place with China Unicom to deliver a new beta version to their WM handsets – where we can work with mobile operators, we’ll be able to deliver a Skype experience on the current WM platform which lives up to expectations. Please give me a shout if you have any further questions – I’ll be more than happy to answer them.
Maybe they removed it just to drive more companies to try to start partnerships with them? It would certainly make sense not to give away something if enough companies are willing to pay for ports customized to their platform.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I definitely see the reasoning in that 3vi1!
Show me the money!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
