Skype for iPhone Comes to Canada

skype-iphone-1.jpg If you recall, I wrote how Skype for iPhone and iPod touch was blocked in Canada. A Skype representative told me, "There are some patent-licensing issues which prevent us from offering it there." The Skype representative went on to say "I can't go into many more details other than it's codec related."

Well my Canadian brothers, rejoice! Today, Skype is bringing the iPhone & iPod touch app to Canada after settling the dispute. The Skype for iPhone application for iPhone and iPod touch is available immediately on the App Store in Canada.

As to the dastardly villain who was blocking Skype for iPhone in Canada, I contacted a Skype representative but he couldn't disclose the company name. I wonder if eBay's (which still owns a 35% stake) next quarterly statement will reveal a large payout to this "nameless one" or "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named." voldemort.jpg
