Skype for BlackBerry 10 coming soon, will be an Android port

We have good and bad news for BlackBerry 10 owners. The good news, Skype is coming soon (not good actually considering the fact that BlackBerry promised a Skype app on launch day), the bad news, Skype for BlackBerry will be a port of the Skype application for Android.

Skype on its support page announced:

If you have a new BlackBerry smartphone powered by the BlackBerry 10 platform, you will soon be able to download and run Skype on these devices. We are working closely with BlackBerry to ensure the Skype for Android app runs great in the BlackBerry 10 environment.

Bad news for sure, I think that BlackBerry 10 OS deserves a native Skype app not a Gingerbread port, ported apps may be functional but are not that polished and fully optimized as apps developed using the Cascades framework.
