Quite scared and confused doing this haha. Hope it all goes well.
I'll have a look tomorrow. I'm pretty sure if I don't have it I'll find it. Its not the easiest thing in the world to do but it does work. I'll refresh my memory in the office tomorrow.

On this note, I fixed the issue by using a different make of microUSB cable (specifically my Kindle one). Weird as I had tried two different Nokia MicroUSB cables on two different PCs.

Apparently, allegedly, Tango is coming out in April.

Microsoft have also identified about 5% of apps that won't work on phones with less than 256MB of RAM, and they're getting in touch with developers to let them know. Which is quite cool of them - the more time developers can have to ensure their apps work, the better!

Whats pretty good too is that Microsoft are going to help the developers get their apps to work with the new tango OS. They're confidant that 100% of apps can work with tango too. Good to hear!

I've had a chance to use the Skype app a bit more, both on wifi and data connections and I've found the call quality excellent with both.

It will be great when it is fully integrated so that you can sign in and leave it running in the background, it's a pain at present that you are only signed in when in the app and you can't multi task. I didn't realise that the first time and tried to answer a text message whilst on a skype call and got dropped.

It appears that Skype will not be integrated into the OS, but will be a standalone app, even at the Apollo stage.

I'm interested to know where you picked this up from? Considering the leak confirmed an app would be released first and integration would be built into Apollo. So far the leak has been correct about this and other previously unknown Apollo details.

There will be a separate skype app that hooks into the os alright but there is no mention that there will be no integration. This is something that they added to that report themselves, which you'll see if you read the links where they've got the information from.

There's a good reason why they will have a separate Skype app, and that reason is tango. There was always going to be a separate skype app, just like there is for facebook, twitter, etc..

EDIT: Just found the link with "Skype app. Still a separate but better app and not integrated into OS. Still optional."

Here's a clip from CES where Skype say they're working on integration with Microsoft on Windows Phone, xbox and on Lync which we know will all have skype integration.
