SKYYYPE 550x242 Google Skype Joint Venture Possible

So there were news in the market of Skype expected to be acquired by Facebook .Last week I also wrote a post regarding this news.But what happened is totally different from our expectations as Voice-over-IP(VOIP) service Skype has been bought by Microsoft for the sum of $8.5 billion.The acquisition is very likely to have a huge impact onĀ  mobile video chat industry.The acquisition reflects Microsoft plans to directly integrate Skype services into Windows Phone 7 and MS also mentioned of Xbox and Kinect integration of Skype as key reason behind the buying.

The deal has more importance on smartphone platforms, as we were also hearing Google Skype Joint Venture Possible , and this acquisition will surely hurt this sort of google plans.
