The news that came out from CES 2009 was that Skype would soon be available for Android. The only question left was how soon? The wait was not long because it's available for download right now! So if you're a big Skype user you can go ahead and download Skype Lite in the Android Market right now!

Skype Lite marks the first native VoIP Client for Java and it should be available for other handsets as well. You'll still need to pay Skype to make calls with Skype Lite but messaging your contact list is done over your data connection.

Is anyone excited to see Skype on Android? What are other VoIP Applications you use?

Skype Application in Android Market

Removed again from the marketplace. The client was not made by Skype, and did not have VOIP - only chat. Most likely a user/password stealing application :)
