    Question Skype Mobile - any ideas on which device might be compatable?


    At the very bottom of an article at WAP Review is the following blurb:
    Skype launched "Lite" clients for Android and Java ME. Skype Lite uses your mobile data and voice channels not WiFi, so even Skype to Skype calls will not really be free. But it is another way to make cheap international calls and IM'ing shouldn't cost anything if you have unlimited data. It also means you will be able to answer calls to your Skype number using your mobile for the cost of a local call. However the calling features are only supported in Australia; Rio de Janeiro & Sao Paulo, Brazil; Denmark, Estonia, Finland, New Zealand, Poland, Sweden, the United States and the UK. Skype Lite for Android is already in the Android Market. The Java version is also available now for over 100 handsets from Nokia, Sony Ericsson, LG, Samsung and Motorola.
    The following is a list of the devices it currently supports:
    • LG: CU515, CU575 Trax, CU720 Shine, KE770
    • Motorola: maxx V6, MotoRIZR Z8, RAZR2 V9, SLVR L9, V3xx
    • Nokia: 5200, 5300, 5310, 5610, 6085, 6111, 6126, 6131, 6165, 6230i, 6233, 6234, 6270, 6280, 6300, 6555, 7370, E61, E62, E71, N70, N72, N73, N75, N76, N78, N80, N81, N82, N95, N96
    • Samsung: A717, A737, SGH-D800, SGH-D830, SGH-D840, SGH-D900, SGH-E770, SGH-E900, SGH-G600, SGH-G800, SGH-U600, SGH-U900, T639
    • SonyEricsson: C702, C902, G502, G700, G900, K550i, K610i, K660, K750i, K770, K790i, K800i, K810i, K850i, S500, T650, T700, TM506, W200i, W300i, W350, W380, W550i, W580, W610i, W660i, W710i, W760, W810i, W830i, W850i, W880i, W890, W902, W910, W980, Z310a, Z525a, Z550i, Z610i, Z750a, Z770

    Has anyone had any luck using a Java app designed for any of these devices on a BlackBerry, and if so which model?

    Skype doesn't work on a BlackBerry currently. I believe there will be an application soon, but nothing as of yet.
