Skype VP says company isn't developing software for Windows Phone 7

Dan Neary, the company's Vice President for the Asia Pacific region, said that it's 
"not developing software for the new Windows Mobile software due later this year," 
but seemed reluctant to expand on the reasons why. Perhaps, like Mozilla, the Skype devs felt they weren't getting access to the right tools. Whatever the reason, this would be a major competitive disadvantage for Microsoft's great new hope on the mobile front, which is already expected to launch with a few things missing. 

We shouldn't get too far ahead of ourselves as this isn't an official renouncement from Skype, merely a statement of the status quo and from a regional exec at that.
