The wait is now over for those of you who were eagerly anticipating Skype for Windows Phone; Microsoft has just announced that a beta of Skype for Windows Phone is now available on the Marketplace.

Allowing users to make audio and video calls to Skype contacts over 3G, 4G, or WiFi, along with calls to mobile phones and landlines with Skype Credit, the app has been tested and certified to provide the best possible experience when used on one of the following Windows Phone devices:

  • Nokia Lumia 710
  • Nokia Lumia 800
  • HTC Titan
  • HTC Radar
  • Samsung Focus S
  • Samsung Focus Flash

This is only the beginning for Skype for Windows Phone…it’s just going to get better and better. We see incredible potential to include Skype capabilities in Windows Phone in order to enable a great experience for you.

You may snag Skype on the Windows Phone Marketplace either through the web-based Marketplace, or through Zune. The final version of Skype for Windows Phone is set to be released sometime in April.
