Skype variant for Windows Phone 7 is a work in progress.

You probably remember sometime back, Skype announced that they had no
plans to develop Skype for Microsoft mobile platform. Well they
haven't change their mind for whatever reasons which we can imagine is
politically motivated. Fortunately, a developer over at Xda has
started working on a variant of Skype which for now allows for
chatting only. The project is still in progress and the developer is
looking for help in the design of the app. So, if you have time and
the skills, go to

At this stage, contacts and ability to chat are working.

I have the feeling that Skype is not going to like this.

eWallet Go! for Windows Phone 7 released.

My first encounter with Ilium Software goes back to the days when Windows Phone was known as Pocket PC for touchscreen devices and Smartphones for non-touchscreen devices. At that time, Microsoft nearly owned theses names. Now that Windows Phone 7 is out, most developers have or are working to port their software to the new platform and Ilium is the latest to announce the release of eWallet.

eWallet is an application that lets you securely store your data on your Windows Phone 7 using 256 bit AES encryption. eWallet does not stop there as it lets you backup and restore your information using Google Docs and Dropbox. Very useful in case you have to perform a hard reset.

eWallet is available on MarketPlace for $4.99.
