Skype Lite and Skype for Windows Mobile discontinued for now
Skype has announced that they have discontinued their two offerings for the Windows Mobile platform.
Skype Lite and Skype for Windows Mobile are no longer available for download from the company’s website.
Skype said that these two applications did not deliver a good enough experience for the end user so they have decided to remove them for now.
They are however not disabling these two apps for the existing users.
Skype Lite only works in a small number of countries. Where it does work, making a call requires you to use up your allocation of minutes from your mobile network, making the Skype-to-Skype calls sort-of-free-per-minute rather than actually-free-per-minute. And with the latest version of the Windows Mobile OS, it’s been increasingly challenging for us to maintain an app which behaves as you’d expect on a wide range of handsets without working with a mobile operator partner.
