It's not much, but it's a good start.  According to the Skype Community Forum, a closed beta is in full swing.  The details are near non-existent, but it's definitely a good sign that Skype for BlackBerry will be available at some point in the (hopefully near) future.  It looks like all the spots are full for now, so if you didn't already sign up then unfortunately you're out of luck for the time being.
