BlackBerry: Leaked Skype (BETA)

Source: Komunitas BlackBerry


A member named valentz leaked the long-waited Skype beta version for Blackberry in Komunitas Blackberry forum which is supposed to be a closed beta testing version from Skype. The application itself looked like a java application installed on my BlackBerry since we must use # and @ as buttons for softkeys. When I opened the .jad file using notepad it shows the following:

By looking at the details RIM means Research In Motion so it is the actual Skype for BlackBerry. After successfully installed Skype on my 8310 Curve, I configured my account but failed to connect and a message appeared saying "Skype couldn't connect over your phone connection". Below are some screenshot of the application:

So if anyone of you feeling lucky and would give it a try download Skype Beta from here and post your results in the comments, thanks!
