BlackBerry users have been giddy about the announcement of Skype coming to BlackBerry 10. Official word from Skype has revealed that it is an Android port.
Now before get all worried, know that it is not all that bad. I’ve seen Skype on the Z10 and it looks amazing. Skype has been working very close with BlackBerry.
How close? Enough to have the Android action bar look nearly identical to that of a native BlackBerry 10 app. It runs so well due to the integration of support for Jellybean in an upcoming BlackBerry 10 OS update.
Skype for BlackBerry 10 won’t be native right away, but it certainly won’t be terrible.
