UPDATE: Starting today, Thorsten Heins announced onstage at BlackBerry Live: Skype will be available on the BlackBerry Z10 after you complete the BlackBerry 10.1 update!
We first tipped our hat that Skype was coming to BlackBerry 10 back at the global launch event on January 30th. Now I’m happy to announce that Skype is available for the newly launched BlackBerry Q10. BlackBerry Q10 and Skype are the perfect pair allowing you to chat with other Skype users from the palm of your hand.
While you’re on the go with your BlackBerry Q10 and the Skype app, you’ll enjoy the ability to have:
- Free face to face video and voice calls
- Instant messages
- low cost voice calls and text messages to landlines and mobiles over WiFi® or wireless network connections.
Skype System Requirements:
Skype runs on the 10.1 Operating System on the BlackBerry Q10. As this new version of the BlackBerry 10 operating system launches on the BlackBerry Z10 in the coming weeks, BlackBerry Z10 owners will have the ability to download Skype for BlackBerry from BlackBerry World. We will be talking more about BlackBerry 10.1 on BlackBerry Z10 at BlackBerry Live, so stay tuned and keep it locked to Inside BlackBerry for more information.
