In hockey, a tie is referred to as being like kissing your sister. Well Skype on the Android, without 3G calling is the same in my book. It's the kind of thing that shows that "selling out" is not limited to winning teams in sports, as the comment in the RWW article by Skype official blogger Peter Parkes "had to do with the Verizon partnership."
Ouch. 3G calling works. And Verizon isn't the only carrier in the USA selling Android devices. T-Mobile and AT&T have them and the Sprint Evo works on 4G and calling over 4G works very well based on tests using a hybrid of the Overdrive and the iPod and iPad using Skype and Truphone.
Bottom line, no 3G is all about capitulation by Skype, not about being disruptive anymore.
It seems PCWorld doesn't think too highly of the app either.
