KDDI and Skype have forged a strategic alliance that will integrate Skype across KDDI’s services, starting with its “au” mobile offerings.

Skype will initially be made available on the au Android smartphone “IS03” and “IS01” from November this year.

There are plans for deeper integration on a range of au Android devices as well as BREW devices in 2011.

KDDI customers with data plans will also be able to have the Skype app “always on” and see friends’ online status at any time, enjoy unlimited Skype-to-Skype call, stay connected via instant messaging, call international phone numbers at Skype Out calling rates, and take part in group chats and conference calls.
