Microsoft's $8.5 billion acquisition of Skype is finalized.
does this mean that skype will no longer be avaliable for android devices and will be a windows phone exclusive application?
Yeah, it will be. Don't see why not.
It's like Google refusing to let Apple and Microsoft to use their search engine.
No A) the deal they signed with the Skype creators states the Microsoft cannot cut support for other parties B) like what beast242tru said they would not make money I think its great because Microsoft is in a unique position to use Skype with Xbox to PC to mobile phones Android / Windows. Would be great to be able to call people from your Xbox to somebodys phone. Well that's how I think it would be a great way to work but that's just me.
if they remove skype from all competitors then they wud not make any money
