Google made quite a splash when they finally unveiled their long awaited Google Talk video calling feature on the latest version of Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread. Well, it looks like they may be looking to expand a little more on that idea with Google apparently in talks for entering into a joint venture with Skype.
If Google is planning on doing anything with the VoIP company they better act fast seeing how there are reports that Facebook may be looking into an all out purchase of Skype in the near future. You can only imagine what Skype integration with Facebook would mean for the company social media giant. A Skype deal would likely be valued at somewhere around $3 – $4 billion dollars.
I just hope Google doesn’t let this one slip through their fingers like they did with TAT mobile UI design company a few months back. RIM snatched them out from under Google when they bought them up in December of last year.
