well to be honest... who knows? all I can say is that over a week ago I changed to windows mobile 6, and its 3g, and I installed skype. I love it. it works really well. if it does come out for 3g berries or for bb's with wifi you'll love it. I installed a gprs monitoring application and a conversation can easily eat up 20 mega
glad I have the unlimited plan! hehe.
There are a couple of options out there - iSkoot is in beta, it uses your phone connection to pass through calls to skype. Yes, it does use minutes, but it's a lot cheaper calling internationally than through your cell plan, and it solves the call quality on an edge connection problem.
Shape Services has a skype client too. I've never used it personally.
If you're looking to save on international calls, Packet8, a VOIP provider like Vonage has a blackberry client that intercepts when you dial international calls and passes them through your home phone account on Packet8 . Calls to canada, for example is free. The only reason I looked for a skype bb client are for the international calls, as I may be cancelling the home phone Packet8 account.
