Default SKYPE at last!!

Skype finally made it to Android and Legend in particular. Haven't tested it with voice calls yet. Now, maybe GTalk will follow?

I've tested it a bit and it even works on EDGE. I couldn't believe that myself but it does.

Hmm... Just seeing the list of permissions it requires confirms I'll stay away from this one as I did from the PC version.

Oh well I lived without it so far without any problem, this won't change

edit: and for a 2.1 stock legend, that's also a pretty big app to install!

Gtalk is a stock app on Android. Or i'm missing your point?
Tested Skype for few mins, seems to work fine. Great sound quality, but... It's so heavyweight and there is no option to shut it down COMPLETELY. Lastly, my phone went offline (which newer happened before) so i just uninstalled it and already forgot. Bloatware.

It froze my phone twice, had to reboot several times... This release of Skype makes Legend unusable, at least my Legend.

I am hoping for gTALK to finally fulfil the promise of its name - enable voice talk :)

Thanks,
If you use Market Access, you can gain entry to it.
I did this and downloaded the app, however, i keeps crashing within seconds of me running it. Any idea why?

When I try to sign in, it instantly says try again later, seems like it doesn't even try to sign me in. Any earthlings having the same problem?
