Yet, they will still not make the protocol accessible to multi-IMs?

This is good, but that would be better...

Agreed needs to be compatible with E buddy. There's nothing worse than running multiple IM software. Hope they iron out the issues with the Galaxy S soon!!!

I hope Android version doesn't get the issue that iPhone 3GS with iOS4 running Skype on background has. The issue drains the battery in about 6 hours. Typical standby time when not running Skype in the background and not using 3G is 5-6 days on one charge.

Interesting you say that. Verizon introduced a Skype Application months ago that was ONLY over 3G, and everyone bitched about not being able to do it over WiFi, making it "useless." Now it's available over other Android phones on Wifi, and people bitch that it's not available over 3G, making it "useless." Some people complain just to complain....but here is reason enough to switch to Verizon : On Verizon smart phones, you can now do Skype over 3G OR Wifi. No more bitching!!

Verizon does not use 3G for skype. It makes a circuit switched call and not data call. How do you get Droid to work on WiFi?

uh using skype over 3g seems pointless to me considering that when I have 3g on my PHONE I can use my PHONE to make calls. Using it over wifi is nice at my house where I dont get great reception. Guess its a preference thing but I could care less about skype over 3G.

On Verizon...I guess this article is misleading since it's not talking about specific carriers.

Is Skype only good for Skype to Skype calls? I don't know anyone that uses Skype so it's teh suxxor for me.

"tested on HTC Desire" my foot! on mine, I wasn't even able to log in. I can see comments on Market saying it stopped working on other people's Desires. not to mention the humongous size of installation and lack of SD card support. this one clearly still needs some work. I'll just go back to Nimbuzz
