Skype for Android hacked to run over 3G in the US

Not that I really care (I live in Australia), but I’m pretty darn sure that a few of you out there were simultaneously happy and disappointed with the news yesterday that Skype has finally made its way to Android.

Happy because it exists, disappointed because the powers-that-be decided that you Americans weren’t worthy enough to use the service when running over 3G.

Well, you can now breath a sigh of relief, as xeudoxus from the Droid Forums has taken the Skype .apk, worked a little bit of voodoo, and given you yanks the ability to use the service when there isn’t a WiFi access point in sight.

Peachy keen to get this on your handset? You can check out the post here for the download link.
