Re: I am having problems downloading skype to my playbook. HELP please?

[ Edited ]

Thanks for sharing that link. the skype icon is displayed there.

 

That indeed is false advertising since there is no skype for playbook.

 

What I don't understand is why apple, google, etc manage to get skype on all their devices and RIM can't. ( Except for Verizon users who are just a small % of RIM's customers )

 

Don't get me wrong, I like my blackberry but my next phone will not be a RIM for that reason alone and my pad is not a playbook.

I bought an iPhone 3GS which is old technology but the apps outstrip the playbook. I think I will get an iPad.

New apps are being developed and released for end users...Skype is not available at the moment but I believe soon it's gonna be released.

A business device isn't a business device when it does not support skype.

Re: I am having problems downloading skype to my playbook. HELP please?

manxman is correct about false advertising..... skype logo is shown on blackberry's own webpage..... just like where they advertised that PB runs "favorite" bb phone and android apps. See http://m.blackberry.com/us/en/playbook-apps.html
