    You should be able to find it by searching for "skype" in the market:
    market://search?q=skype

    If not, it means your provider is blocking the app, or your phone is not compatible.

    Search for Skype.

    It should be available. What version are you running?

    Better yet navigate to the skype mobil site from your android browser and it'll set you up. Can also go to Skype.com on your pc and enter your cell number, they will sms you a link to download and install.

    Skype is only available for 2.1 and 2.2, your X10 is running 1.6 and might be scheduled for a 2.x upgrade soon... maybe for the mini.

    I had Skype up and running on my Android, but my phone's hardware died and went to Hades. I received a replacement phone; when I tried to re-load Skype, I found it didn't even show up on the Android Market! I tried other application download engines, as well as the download link from Skype.Com, all with the same result.

    After hours of agonizing with Skype and Sprint tech support, and getting nowhere, I spent about 7 hours reviewing, over and over, my Android's settings. I finally resolved it thus:

    1. Open the Android Market
    2. Choose "Settings."
    3. Change the "Content Filtering" maturity rating to "Medium."

    And that's it! I don't understand why Skype requires a slightly immoral maturity rating, since the app is positively "G" rated, and I've already complained to them about that.

    Good luck!
