Default VOIP Capabilities Coming to Windows Phone?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.wpcentral.com/key-new-windows-phone-tools-hinted-mix11-sockets-voip' target='_blank'>http://www.wpcentral.com/key-new-wi...11-sockets-voip</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Socket-layers are critically needed for such services as VOIP aka Skype, Viber, etc. We now know that multitasking is coming to Windows Phone 7 with 'Mango' but now we have a very strong hint that socket-support, in some way, may be coming as well."</em></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/z1iAzS9Svjc&amp;feature=player_detailpage&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/z1iAzS9Svjc&amp;feature=player_detailpage&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" /></object></p><p>Services such as Skype have long lamented the limitations in their ability to develop their applications for Windows Phone 7.&nbsp; Apparently Microsoft has heard their cries and are considering adding this functionality&nbsp;in&nbsp;an upcoming&nbsp;update.&nbsp;It's one of&nbsp;their "top 2 or 3&nbsp;requests from developers".&nbsp; Official announcements have not been made, but Brandon Watson definitely hints here&nbsp;at a possible official announcement at&nbsp;MIX11.&nbsp; In any case,&nbsp;we can look forward to more exciting&nbsp;announcements at MIX11.</p>
