DISCONTINUED: Skype retires Skype for Windows Phone 7 - Keeps it alive in Windows Phone Marketplace
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:02 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

When Microsoft announced Windows Phone 8 and said that Windows Phone 7 devices won't be updateable to v8, it also said that it will take care about the future support of Windows Phone 7.8. Well, seems the clocks ran faster in Redmond than a 24 month contract, which locked many Windows Phone 7 users into a minimum duration. As Skype said today, Microsoft has the best platforms to enable Skype to build excellent experiences for their users. However, it seems that Windows Phone 7 isn't the best platform anymore. While the Windows Phone 8 platform is gaining good momentum in the marketplace, Skype announced that it's not planning to release further updates to Skype for Windows Phone 7.
