I hope it's a better product than the version they did for Windows Mobile. 
You couldn't turn it off without rebooting the phone (and I'm not even 
sure that worked) and it just sat there sucking bandwidth continually 
checking to see who of your Skype contacts was online. I quickly decided 
that I would rather use the calls included in my plan than spend all my 
data allocation checking to see if there was somebody I could call for
