Nokia say Skype on (256mb) phones is a no go!
The big news recently about Skype recently was that it was going to be able to run on 256mb phones, aka the ones that run “Tango” which as the moment is the Lumia 610. Nokia have stepped in was press statment saying that they are removing the app from their 256mb line up of handsets as the user experience is not upto scratch with their standards
“Nokia values the user experience provided by its products and services. Therefore, although the Skype Windows Phone version is workable on Nokia Lumia 610, after in-depth testing, we found that the user experience is not up to par with Nokia and Skype’s expectation and decided not recommending users using Skype on Nokia Lumia 610. In the future, users of Nokia Lumia 610 would no longer be able to download Skype Windows Phone version from Window Phone Marketplace. However, Skype Windows Phone version would still be available for other users.”
I am sure it wont be long until Microsoft step in and change all of this!
