Skype closed beta comes to BlackBerry

Chris Ziegler

We're pretty sure that Skype won't rest until its made every last carrier in the world squirm uncomfortably as they watch their old-guard business models flirt with obsolescence, and the next platform to get the treatment -- long overdue, may we add -- is going to be BlackBerry. The company has now taken a handful of signups to apply for a private, closed beta where users will be able to check out the goods in prerelease form, which hopefully means that a public release isn't too far off; between this, Windows Mobile, and the iPhone, they've now taken a pretty good chunk out of the smartphone market. Actually, we think we can see the shiny beads of sweat forming on carriers' foreheads from all the way over here -- except for you, 3. You're looking as cool as a cucumber.
