Updated Skype released for Android devices Skype has released the updated Skype for Android software today, version 1.0.1.
Amongst the most notable improvements are:

* 320*240 and 240*400 screen resolutions are now supported.
* Hardware back key is now supported.
* Signing out from Skype now exits Skype.
* Reduced power consumption in idle mode.
* Improved login stability and behavior.
* Improved performance with large contact lists.
* Reduced application size.
* General bug fixes.

More phones are now supported by the popular software, including devices with "lower screen resolutions" such as the WildFire, which has 320x240 resolution.

Skype has added hardware back key support, meaning if you hit the back key on your smartphone, the user interface will close but the program will still run in the background, allowing you to continue receiving messages and calls.

If you sign out, then the Skype application exits.

You can download the software from the Android Market.
