    Skype and Verizon Now Joining Forces

    Verizon to Offer Skype on Smart phones

    Skype and Verizon Wireless are embracing one another and taking a step into the future together. Skype and Verizon Wireless just announced that they'll be partnering up to deliver a full Skype experience for Android devices (and Blackberry) on Verizon Wireless. Here's what you'll be able to do with Skype on Verizon Wireless:
    make and receive unlimited Skype-to-Skype voice calls to any Skype user around the globe on America’s most reliable wireless network
    call international phone numbers at competitive Skype Out calling rates
    send and receive instant messages to other Skype users
    remain always connected with the ability to see friends’ online presence

    The current plan is to launch in March on the Motorola Droid, Motorola Devour, & Droid Eris (among other Blackberry phones). Skype will come pre-installed on those devices, fully integrated. This is huge because it kind of, sort of enables users to use Skype in lieu of Verizon Wireless for phone calls, potentially saving users a ton of money. If Verizon just offered a data only plan for Android devices, it'd be even more amazing.

    We're not sure how this Skype+Verizon Wireless deal works out for the rest of the industry because there are other Android devices on other networks. Will they receive the same application that Verizon Wireless Android devices would? Would the other carriers allow the same functionality? We'll see soon.
