No timetable on Skype for cellphones, sez CEO


Those cellphone addicts patiently waiting for a mobile version of Skype shouldn't hold their breath, it seems. At least that's the impression left by Skype CEO Niklas Zennstrom, who told Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat that the company has no publicly available products to offer and can't give a timetable for when they might available. Skype for Windows Mobile-based devices has, of course, been available for some time now, but other mobile platforms, namely Symbian, have proven a tougher nut to crack, with Zennstrom citing technical problems as the primary cause of the delay. Of course, it's not like Skype hasn't made any progress bridging the Skype/Symbian divide, with the app actually spotted running on a Nokia handset earlier this year --although the lack of any further apparent progress in the ensuing months probably should have been a clue that things weren't going quite as planned.
