Microsoft will pay $8.5 billion to acquire Skype under a deal announced in May. With that kind of money in play, the company wants to embed the VoIP service into as many of its products as possible, including Windows Phone 7. With Mango, users will be able to launch a Skype session through their phones, though Microsoft to date has provided few details beyond that.
