Er, how is this different to the Skype thats been available on Symbian for possibly a few years via the 3 Network in the UK? Colleague has had it on his N95 8gig since he got it over a year back.

Slow news day?

Skype is not available in the Ovi Store for Nokia owners in the U.S.

Per a Skype executive, they pulled it due to an agreement that was made with Verizon Wireless.

There is a work around: go to the Skype site and download it there directly from your PC. It majorly sucks, and it's another negative for unlocked Nokia owners in the States.

You'd think Nokia, since this was a major marketing push for them, would make some kind of statement, announcement...or anything; just silence.
