Skype App Won’t Support Low End Windows Phone Devices

Microsoft just released the first version of Skype app in Windows Phone Marketplace last night. While most of us will be enjoying the app, the upcoming Windows Phone Tango devices with 256MB RAM such as Nokia Lumia 610 won’t have access to this most wanted app. In the release notes by Skype team posted yesterday, they have mentioned that your Windows Phone requires a minimum of 512MB of memory to install and use Skype which basically tells us that Windows Phone Tango devices are not supported.

I really hope Skype team sort out this issue soon as the next billion people who Nokia is targeting in developing nations should have access to Skype on Lumia Windows Phone devices.
