   Skype only works with android 2.2 and above so be aware of that limitation.  My Galaxy S is still (waiting for telecom updates) 2.1 but got around that by using a free app called Tango which seems to work just as well as skype and fille the gap in the meantime.

Look at the Skype site and you'll find more details about supported handsets.

I have just gone through the exercise, and the short answer is not really.

There are however a couple of exceptions, with Skype recently releasing a version for a very limited number of handsets. From memory only 1 is officially available in NZ.

I reluctantly turned to Apple for this very reason, which I must say thus far works faultlessly
