Skype, the Internet VoIP service, is coming to Apple’s iPhone and Research In Motion’s BlackBerry, according to a report Sunday.

While rumors of Skype adding mobile device support have been floating around for some time, the E-Bay owned company is now delivering the goods ahead of the CTIA Wireless show, which begins Wednesday in Las Vegas.

The first device to get support for the VoIP service will be Apple’s iPhone, with availability starting Tuesday, according to a report in the New York Times.
