    I've seen lots of discussion on WHEN will it come, but not much about what people want it to include. I hope it includes google voice/android like ability to make calls via Skype instead of using your phone. It would be great is we could make calls over data when on wifi.

    I hope to get Skype. As you said, integrated as deeply as Android version, though deeper (i.e, in the contact view, I can "dial" their phone, or Skype; can also choose which "number" has priority when I press contact to dial).

    All I have to say is that it better be impressive, since it has taken them so long to get it right. ;)

    I think it'll just be nice to have skype, end of. To be honest I'd be happy if they released an app now that just did the job and worried about FB/Twitter level deep integration later.

    I want it to be nice and simple to a point that I don't even know Skype is there. I am going to break it down by hubs

    Call hub
    - I can call via Skype (wifi/3G) or PSTN
    - Have a video chat option to other Skype users

    Messaging hub
    - Similar to MSN and Facebook, Skype messaging included
    - If a friend has WP I can automatically message him using Skype instead of text

    People hub
    - Show all Skype contacts

    Me hub
    - Show how many Skype minutes I have or my Skype data plan

    Hopefully it will be soon that we all will know how integrated it will be. According to this guy they are working WP7 first.

    I have Skype on my computer and my Nokia N8.

    I can make calls directly directly from my computer, which come in handy. I can make 3G or Wifi calls off my Nokia N8. It works real well on my phone. I've never had anyone complain about voice quality using Skype with 3G or WiFi.
