Default Skype on Blackberries with WiFi - WHEN!?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm considering a curve 8900 mainly due to the WiFi feature. I would like to use it as a cell phone just so as not carry an extra device but mainly I would like to do e-mail and skype calling over WiFi. I know the iPhone allows this which would be perfect if it weren't for the worthless touch screen keyboard on the iPhone that is absolutely unacceptable for sending email of a length more than 1 or 2 words. However, without being to do skype voice calling over WiFi it's a major deal breaker.

Skype says here (Skype Coming to BlackBerry Smartphones in May - About Skype) that we should have had the software 6 months ago but when you follow the link there is no blackberry software: Download Skype for your mobile

I posted multiple times asking for clarification on skype's forum but the questions are just ignored. If there is no skype client for blackberry, why not!?! When will it be out?

What are my options besides blackberry (won't work for me if there is no skype) and iphone (keyboard sucks can't email)? I need a WiFi smart phone that can do both.
