Skype for iPhone: Over 1 Million Apps Served... in 2 Days!

Keeping it short but sweet, Skype's blog shows once again how crazy-powerful Apple's iPhone software platform really is:

In less than two days, Skype for iPhone has been downloaded more than one million times – around six downloads every second.

While copypetitors are still announcing or coming online (almost daily, with RIM's App World! launch on April 1st -- we fool you not! -- and Microsoft's Marketplace) this showcases the high ground Apple has already seized with their "on every iPhone" ecosystem, and the uphill battle rival platforms might face.
