There was a lot of debate leading up to the BlackBerry 10 launch announcement, as to whether or not we would see Skype on BlackBerry 10. We found out on January 30th that Skype would indeed be coming to BlackBerry 10, but we were not told whether or not it would be a native app.
Thanks to some information on Skype’s site we now know that the BlackBerry 10 app will indeed be a port of the Android one. Now this isn’t the worst news, but we were hoping that we would see a native cascades app for Skype. In the end as long as it works and we can use Skype on our BlackBerry 10 devices, the way in which it got there is not an issue.
We still don’t have a date for when we will see Skype makes its way to BlackBerry World, but hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer.
