News: Skype Video Calling for Mobile in the Works

Skype, that wonderful example of VoIP and group IM done right has it’s sights set on bringing video calling to mobile platforms.  All of them.  So far, they’ve made incremental improvements to their mobile clients, but they’re still not up to par with their desktop apps.  Still, slow and steady wins the race and hopefully sometime soon we’ll have yet another option in mobile video calling.

Android Guys quotes Skype from a May press release:

Skype envisions a world where video plays a larger role in the way we communicate.  It’s on computers, televisions, and it will eventually be coming to mobile devices too. We’re betting big on video, and we intend to set the bar on mobile video calling, and it’s something we’re going to do this year.   We will be bringing a direct to consumer app to the Android marketplace later this year. This application will be available for all consumers globally to download regardless of carriers.
