Nokia N97 to be rejected by networks because of Skype?
A recent story in the UK trade press has been picked up by a number of tech websites and is sparking a fair amount of debate. Nokia says its forthcoming N97 will support Skype, which has apparently annoyed the O2 and Orange networks. They're reportedly threatening not to sell it. However, this type of thing isn't new: in 2007 we reported on a similar issue with the Nokia N95. [Sources: ArsTechnica.com; TechSpot.com; The Fonecast podcast no.38]
