How to get Skype working?

I need to be able to Skype from this machine. I bought it for my girlfriend so she can use it to Skype with her family across the ocean. I picked the Playbook over a Netbook, and now I can't get Skype running on this thing.

There is no Skype apps at the moment for the Blackberry Playbook. So right now there is no way to get Skype Video Chat working on the Playbook.

Na, doesn't work. Lags way too much to have a conversation and video doesn't work.

Re: How to get Skype working?

Pretty sure it went something like this. Blackberry: "You want Skype on our system? You'll have to pay us $x per Playbook owner". Skype: "GTFO". Blackberry: "No soup for you!"

Re: How to get Skype working?

imo.im is quite good for audio chat, but its video part is not working, although I set the camera and see my own video. However, I don't see the other part's video nor they see mine.

We really need Skype. When? If ever...
