Buried within Skype's announcement that its app has finally graduated from beta on Windows Phone, the mention of a 512MB minimum memory requirement reveals that the Internet phone service won't -- currently -- work with the likes of Nokia's Lumia 610 and the ZTE Tania.
Skype has logged this under "current issues", which we hope means the company is working tirelessly to squeeze the app into cheaper Windows Phone hardware.
Other features still being worked on include Bluetooth compatibility and Skype SMS messaging support. C'mon, they're part of the family now -- can't they all just get along?
Buying Skype last year for 8.5 Billion dollars was considered the #1 smartest move Microsoft has made
last year, and even made a big deal about integrating Skype into their handsets. How could they not make Skype work on all of their windows 7 phones?!
