Another Leaked Skype Beta? Let Me Know Once You Install

Personally I don’t see this as much to get excited about since Skype for BlackBerry is not truly VoIP. It just routes your international and long distance calls over Skype for cheaper rates. On the other hand when we mentioned the leaked beta for the Storm it looks like there is definitely interest in the application. This version seems to run on non touchscreen devices so check it out. It installed on my Bold but I could not get it to connect…

Aditya let me know that he spotted what looks like another Skype beta in the Komunitas BlackBerry forum. The file is a JAD along with the appropriate COD files for what looks like Skype for BlackBerry. I could not get it to work after installing it but maybe one of you will have better luck. You will either need to install it OTA or copy all the files to your memory card and click on the JAD file from the file explorer.

You can download the zip at this link on RapidShare

It could be that this is just a regular J2ME beta that runs on the BlackBerry OS but from the JAD file it looks like this was designed for the BlackBerry. Though the idea of using the # and @ symbols as softkeys instead of a menu is not to my liking.

  1. WOW! i can signed in but not able to call. just for chat. :(

  2. Installed it on my Bold. Has someone call my from his PC Skype client. We talked for about 3 minutes, he said I sounded sort of muffled.

  3. I wouldn’t need to use this for calling – but I do have a lot of friends who I chat with, so it’s good to see the product developing. I haven’t really put it thru its paces – just simple chat for now. Worked just fine for me…

  4. Please help. The file has only COD and JAD files – how do I get them onto the BB? I unzipped into a folder and tried to use the DM Application Loader to install, but it looks for an ALX file. Any help would be appreciated.

  5. This is sad, and looks like rim is reaching the end of the line

    while is still remains the best for email. Thats just it
    i look at my wifes iphone, and its got everything.
    My brothers Htc Magic….android is good.

    BB OS… Not anymore. no evolution. Most bugs remain for aeons.

    Shame.
