Skype launches on Windows Phone
It serves up the usual Skype features – calling, video chat and instant messaging, plus cheap-rate calls using Skype Credit – all wrapped up in the Windows Phone Metro interface.

How else to explain the fact that only one Nokia Windows Phone – the Lumia 900 – actually features the front-facing camera needed for making Skype video calls? If Microsoft's official Windows Phone hardware partner isn't supporting its own VoIP service, it's facing an uphill struggle.
