Nokia: Skype must change or die - silicon.com

Nokia: Skype must change or die - silicon.com

Well there's a suprise, Skype has to find a business model or it wont survive? Isn't thast true for any business? Skype have a huge user base and their model could be to just sell out to another company?

Nokia are pushing standards based VoIP (SIP) over mobile data. That's all very well, but at the moment (in the UK at least) data charges are rediculously high on most networks, 3 don't even offer a data service to the Internet (walled garden).

Even if data charges drop dramatically, they'll have to drop a long way to get close to bundled telephony charges, if the operators don't block access to VoIP gateways.
