No longer exclusive to Verizon, and now works as you’d expect. The small print notes:
Skype has been tested on HTC and Motorola devices with Android OS
2.1 and above. It may work on other Android phones, but we can’t
guarantee full functionality or compatibility. We’re aware of
some problems with the Samsung Galaxy S, and we’re looking to
address these in the future.
Update: Apparently this new app is just plain “Skype”. The “Skype for Mobile” app was and remains exclusive to Verizon.
