Yeah it was released and it sucks so bad that it isn't funny. Skype should be ashamed of themselves for releasing this half ass app with out video calling off all things! Your better of sticking with fring instead. Also limiting US users to wifi only sucks as well.

There was already "Skype for Android" what they just released is "Skype Mobile for Android" The difference being that it has a new logo and takes up more space. Domestic calls are still handled by the service provider, not skype. 7MB for this crap...and no Apps2sd support? Uninstalled!
