Nokia Pulls Skype For Windows Phone App From Lumia 610 Device

This is a really bad news for Nokia Lumia 610 device owners. After Skype announced that it won’t support Skype for Windows Phone on devices with 256MB RAM, Nokia came to rescue the users and announced that Skype for Windows Phone will work on Lumia 610. But now, Nokia has felt the same way Skype did and has decided to pull the Skype app from the marketplace.

Below is the translated statement from Nokia China,

“Nokia values the user experience provided by its products and services. Therefore, although the Skype Windows Phone version is workable on Nokia Lumia 610, after in-depth testing, we found that the user experience is not up to par with Nokia and Skype’s expectation and decided not recommending users using Skype on Nokia Lumia 610. In the future, users of Nokia Lumia 610 would no longer be able to download Skype Windows Phone version from Window Phone Marketplace. However, Skype Windows Phone version would still be available for other users.”

What do you think of this decision from Nokia ?
