Default Skype available on Verizon BBs

So, it is official - Skype is available on Verizon blackberries.

Skype available for VZW Blackberry

I'm wondering if this is exclusive to VZW as a way to differentiate? Or will other carriers jump in as well???

ATT, WHAT GIVES???

Oops, my eyes played a trick on me - I read what I WANTED to read...

I apologize.

But the question remains - what happened to the other carriers?

Wirelessly posted

I know that it isn't.
Is VZW the only provider that will offer Skype on it's phones? Were others carved out?

Doesn't do Skype = not interesting. VoIP apps are a dime a dozen.
