Seems kind of fishy for them to just remove it all together since Skype still haven't gotten their act together and come out with an official app for android. I contacted them and got this response...

"Please note that the Skype Lite application is no longer available for
download from our site. We?ve chosen to withdraw Skype Lite because we
want to offer our new customers an improved mobile experience ? much
like the version that has proved so popular on the iPhone, and is now
available on Symbian phones. Our focus is on providing a rich user
experience that allows you to enjoy free Skype-to-Skype and low cost
calls as easily on the move as you do at your desktop.

We felt that Skype Lite does not offer the best possible Skype

Dunno if this means they are going to be coming out with an official version soon (especially since verizon is coming out with a skype android app soon) but I figured I would ask if anyone else had information on Skype or VOIP in general.
