I dont think that theyre going to change the core service that much. I think that they are leaning more towards spreading the influence of skype and then charging for those services.

How many sales did Kinect for XBox 360 get?

Everyone who purchased one will soon have a Skype-ready phone available in their living room. Goodbye telephone and hello videophone, which will most likely come with a service charge.
