    I think it'll be interesting to see how this goes down, Android and Skye are tight, and now an enemy OS (windows phone 7) owns it.

    I doubt it'll make a difference w/ Skype on Android phones. Huge corps are smart enough not to block use of key things on other corp's stuff. Like you can use itunes on a Windows comp etc
