As per this article ( Skype Gets Closer To Mobile Carriers, Inks Deal With Mach For Direct Billing For Skype Credits | TechCrunch ) skype is going carrier billing. Will this mean Skype will come to BB10 irrespective of MSFT's consent? coz carriers would like to have presence on as many platforms as possible to maximise revenue.
secondly, Skype is a cost center for MSFT. A cost center must worry about its own profitability. so will Skype act in its own interest or be a scapegoat for MSFT's larger mobile strategy (WP8)? ignoring 80 Million subscriber isnt exactly acting in its own interest.
Just sharing my thoughts and would love to hear other comments.
