For those with mobile phones not yet supported, I highly recommend fring. It supports different IM platforms, different social networking sites, and it also last.fm. I tried and tested it, and it definitely passed my function-over-form criteria.
Back to Skype beta version, following is my quick peek into it.
The SMS Messages feature kinda interests me.
I have not tried it yet. I just took some quick pictures of the Skype forSymbian Beta version. But I have no doubt this will work smoothly. I was able to make Skype calls and conference calls via fring smoothly. There is no reason why Skype application cannot do it.
