MySpace and Skype have just announced that a free MySpaceIM with Skype Internet voice communications tool is now out of a beta and is officially available.
The new product MySpaceIM with Skype, integrates MySpace’s popular IM client—currently the world’s fastest-growing IM platform with more than 25 million installed users—with Skype’s free, high-quality voice-calling capability.
As you might can tell from the name, MySpaceIM with Skype will enable users to place free Skype Internet calls to other MySpace or Skype users. This will be eased by the capability of users to link their MySpace profiles, photos or avatars to their Skype accounts.

Big question, though. It's my impression that MySpace users skew younger than Skype's. I can, then, picture two teen (or subteen) MySpace Members talking to each other on their cell as they look at each other's MySpace pages.
When near their PCs, will such MySpace users switch from cell to Skype?
