Skype & BlackBerry …
After it has been quiet now around the native Skype for BlackBerry application, I am not so sure anymore they are still working on it after all. But one thing I found out is that even you would have Skype on your BlackBerry, you could still not do calls over Skype which is related to RIM’s API programming. You would only have one way communication, like a walkie-talkie.

Another issue just came to my attention.
When using this program with Skype on your BlackBerry and let’s say you have Skype on your computer running as well, then nobody can call you anymore. That’s pitty for me as I have a Skype number overseas which my family can dial to call me. Such calls would usually arrive on my computer’s Skype or, if I am offline, be redirected to my mobile phone.
I contacted the Support of this software and they said they will soon include a function that allows the call for 20 seconds to go through to your Skype running on the Computer. Just wonder how reliable that would be. I actually don’t want to miss any calls.
