Bye Bye Skype for Windows Mobile

Many websites are reporting that Skype for Windows Mobile has disappeared from skype website.

Skype says:

Unfortunately, Skype Lite – a version of Skype for your mobile phone – and Skype for Windows Mobile are no longer available for download from our site.

We’ve chosen to withdraw Skype Lite and Skype for Windows Mobile because we want to offer our new customers an improved mobile experience – much like the version that has proved so popular on the iPhone, and which is now available on Symbian phones. Our focus is on providing a rich user experience that allows you to enjoy free Skype-to-Skype and low cost calls as easily on the move as you do at your desktop.

We felt that Skype Lite and Skype for Windows Mobile were not offering the best possible Skype experience.

Maybe they saw that fring and nimbuzz are way better, using a more efficient network protocol?

But what if they fail to deliver the new version? What if the new version is not compatible with older Windows Mobile handsets? The old skype version was compatible with Windows Mobile 2003 onwards, i highly doubt that the new one will do the same.

What if you want to download it? Easy, the new website will help you!
