Will I be able to download and use SKYPE ?

I am hoping that I will be able to download skype on the HTC EVO 4G and make and receive phone and video calls, like I now do from my computer. Then I simple would not hesitate to upgrade and get.

Re: Will I be able to download and use SKYPE ?

Skype is not currently offering their Mobile or Lite client for any handsets on Sprint.

The mobile version of Skype offers Skype voice and text - no video at this time.

There are no announced plans for Skype video on any handset at this time.

We cannot comment on unannounced plans or rumors.

The Droid does because it is on Verizon and Verizon and Skype are working exclusively for the time being. I don't think we will see skype on the Evo for some time. On a happier note, Qik seems like a great app, and it will do calls to pc's as well.

Check out this you tube video.  It shows and Evo doing video chat with Skype  via Fring.   So, there is currently a work around for using Skype on the evo.  I just hope it isnt removed somehow before launch.
