Skype stay at the Ovi Store for USA has been cut short. Skype for Symbian has been removed from the Ovi Store due to a recently signed agreement between Skype and Verizon Wireless. This doesn’t mean that USA based Nokia handset owners won’t be able to download and use the app. The app can still be downloaded from Skype’s Official website.
Skype for Symbian has found a new home. It has landed at the Ovi Store. But that’s not the only place from where you can get the app. It is available from the Skype’s official website as well. The app which can be used over WiFi or 3G allows you to make free Skype to Skype calls, send SMS, do Instant Messaging and much more. Full features list and a companion video after the jump.
