What is this, the iPhone blog?

If the premise of posting this article is that this is a step towards "open networks", then it would have been wise to include the fact that the vast amount of windows mobile phones out there have had free skype-skype capability for years: »www.skype.com/download/skype/windowsmobile/

No mention of that, plus the addendum that Skype for Blackberries will be out sooner than Skype for iPhone really makes me begin to wonder about the objectivity of this site.

With the iPhone, AT&T has the power (through Apple) to ban anyone without a jailbreak from using an app that it feels might compete with its cellphone service. That all the previous VoIP apps for iPhone never managed to get in the store isn't a coincidence.

The BlackBerry doesn't have these sort of problems, other than the microphone API being depreciated for questionable reasons.

So, this isn't particularly over-iPhone-centric since, unlike other platforms, this is actually something special. Which is extremely lame.

Don't like the content? Don't read it. Fairly simple if you ask me.
