If you're one of the lucky ducks that happens to have a BlackBerry Q10 or Dev Alpha C, you'll be happy to know that Skype is now available for download in BlackBerry World. It looks like it's still in somewhat of a beta for now as it's called Skype (Preview) but it should be pretty solid overall.

We did get a chance to check it out on our BlackBerry Q10 review unit and it's running great overall. Voice calls, video chat and IM are all there and ready to rock. 

Features include:

  • Skype to Skype IMs, video and voice calls are free* over 3G or WiFi. 
  • Make low-cost calls and send SMS messages to mobiles or landlines from your BlackBerry® smartphone.
  • Send pictures, videos and files to any of your contacts.
  • Enjoy high-quality sound when you call anyone else who is on Skype.
  • Talk face to face or show what you’re seeing with front and rear-facing cameras.
  • Talk to your Windows Live Messenger friends on Skype. Sign in to Skype with your Microsoft account and have your Messenger, Hotmail and Outlook contacts in one place.

Q10/Dev Alpha C users can head to the link below to grab Skype now. Z10 users will sadly have to hang tight a bit longer.
