Skype did $126 million in revenue Q1

Ebay reported Q1 financial results late Wedensday. Personally I find Skype's development to be the most interesting. Skype had $126 million in revenue for the first three months of 2008, 63 % higher than Q1 2007 and about 9 % higher than Q4 2007. Not as seasonal as eBay's core marketplaces business. It doesn't seem unlikely for Skype to be doing a little over $600 million in revenue this year. Not too shabby. =)

For comparison, revenues for eBay marketplaces was $1.484 billion and Paypal $582 million for the same period.

@Daniel: jag lyssnade inte på konferenssamtalet med investerarna. tidigare växte skype med närmare 100 % per år, så även 61 % är en kraftig inbromsning. helt klart.
