Skype still has room to grow says founder Niklas Zennstrom, and hopes that Microsoft will take advantage of the opportunity.
Skype founder Niklas Zennstrom admitted that Skype's full potential hasn't been realized yet – there is a lot more work to do on the core technology to improve quality of video calls as it is. But he's also confident that the overall Skype experience will improve as the capabilities of networks and smartphones also improves.
During an interview at the e-G8 forum in Paris, Zennstrom indicated that Microsoft needed to capitalize on its (insane) $8.5 billion acquisition of Skype by expanding into mobile and improving video call quality. "I think that Microsoft has a huge opportunity to integrate it into a lot of their different services," he said.
