Interesting news in the Unified Communications world today. Microsoft has acquired by Microsoft. Read the full press release.

Skype will support Microsoft devices like Xbox and Kinect, Windows Phone and a wide array of Windows devices, and Microsoft will connect Skype users with Lync, Outlook, Xbox Live and other communities. Microsoft will continue to invest in and support Skype clients on non-Microsoft platforms.

Skype is a great product and I look forward to see it integrated with Microsoft products, especially Lync and Outlook.
