One of the key features of the Nokia N97 handset was the inclusion of Skype to allow users to make free or low cost phone calls. This is a good thing for the handset owner, but the mobile service providers want the feature removed from the handset and Orange and O2 are among the providers opposing the feature.

According to reports, both T-Mobile and Three have said they will support Skype on the handset, but O2 and Orange could refuse to stock the handset until the feature is removed. Many networks have already banned VOIP from being used.
Nokia still plans to make Skype an integral feature of the handset with a dedicated button for Skype possible and Skype may be used to manage contacts on the device. A deal between Skype and Nokia undoubtedly involves Nokia getting a portion of the Skype revenue.
