    The official Skype app should be released tomorrow. But the voice part will only work with an iPhone or a 2G touch, because the first gen touch's don't have voice capabilities.

    Eh, I'd rather stick with my free VOIP service on fring. I don't even know anybody who uses Skype, so naturally, I can't even call anybody for free.

    guys i just got my touch a few days ago!

    am SO excited about skype compatibility for 2G touch.

    how exactly will it work though? as far as i can see there is no voice input for the touch...

    Apparently there's no messaging facility and the VOIP only works on WiFi and not on 3G or Edge... Stick with Fring...
