Unfortunately they are once again playing favorites with select carriers, which means a large number of Pre fans will be out of luck.
Weâ€™re working constantly to bring Skype to as many mobile devices as possible, and weâ€™re excited to announce that Skype is now available on the Palm Pre 2 from Verizon Wireless. […]
All calls run on the largest and most reliable wireless network in the US, which helps to make sure that call quality is top-notch, and lets you use your favorite accessories, including Bluetooth headsets. (Official Skype Blog)
Palm Pre 2 fans upon other carriers attempting to download Skype will be greeted with a friendly “Skype is not available for your phone” despite the fact that they run the same exact mobile OS.
Skype isn’t saying when their app will be available for the rest of the Palm Pre tribe, but hopefully the company will consider exiting Verizon’s walled garden lest they lose out customers to rivals like Google Voice.
Note: If anyone has any tips/hacks for porting Skype to Palm Pre 2 fans on other carriers, feel free to enlighten us in the comment section below!
