Report: Skype for Windows Phone app expected “very soon”

Microsoft employees are now testing a Windows Phone client, according to The Verge’s Tom Warren, citing several sources.

Warren reports that the Skype app, expected to debut “very soon” — perhaps at the Mobile World Congress at the end of the month — is expected to be a stand-alone app, rather than integrated with the People Hub.

Microsoft’s acquisition of Skype closed last October and the Internet phone company is now a division within Microsoft. Skype already has apps for the iPhone and for Android phones.
