Re: Sign the "Skype for the BlackBerry Playbook" Petition.

We will email the Skype CEO and Vice President on February 1st with the subject "Skype for the BlackBerry Playbook", and we will achieve our goal!

This, is a Mass Email Campaign (with a smaller Twitter Component). We want Skype on the BlackBerry Playbook, it is a great video chatting service, and with two cameras, 1080p, and stereo microphones, Skype chatting on the Playbook could be better than on most laptops. It seems right now that Skype is not going to make an app for the Playbook, but we want to change that. Many people have been saying, the way to get Skype on the Playbook is to email both the Skype CEO: Tony Bates, and the Skype Vice President: Neil Stevens, the problem with this is that the emails are not organized, people are sending them in here and there and so far, this has not worked. What we want to do is make an organized push, so we want people posting on this thread, committing that on one day - February 1st, they will Email both Tony Bates, and Neil Stevens, regarding Skype for the Blackberry Playbook. If you work for a company that uses Skype frequently, have a loved one who lives far away, or really any other situation where you feel you can press a certain issue in your email, I encourage you to do so. We want them to get every kind of reason there is. If you don't have time to write your email, please feel free to use the email below, as what we're looking for the most here is that we get a lot of people emailing on the same day, again, February 1st. The one real condition is that you set the subject to "Skype for the Blackberry Playbook" (we would love to have Neil and Tony open their inboxes only to find tonnes of emails with the same clear cut subject line), and we hope that you will email both Neil Stevens, and Tony Bates, to really get the point across. These are the email addresses: neil.stevens@skype.net
tony.bates@skype.net
We don't know that this will work, but as I said, you can use the email below if you do not have time to compose your own, so we might as well try. Please post on here if you intend to take part, and leave negativity at the door, if you think this is a stupid idea simply don't post and don't take part. Please remember, even if use your own, personally composed email rather than the one below, use the subject line "Skype for the Blackberry Playbook". Please avoid spam, but spread the word! Thank you in advance.

Join the Facebook group!!!: http://www.facebook.com/events/373813225966333/
Please make sure you post on here too! We need posts on this thread to keep it up in a noticeable spot for other people to discover it! Use Facebook but post on here too please!

Follow the new Twitter Page! The Twitter Page will post updates similar to this page and the Facebook page, to promote the mass email campaign plan which is to be executed February 1st, 2012. There is also a small Twitter component to our campaign, where we plan to Tweet to @Skype to ask for Skype for the BlackBerry Playbook (this is also to be done February 1st). Please note, we would love it if you took part in both the email and the Twitter, but as the email is the primary component in our mission, I should say that if you only are willing to do one of the two, please choose to email, it's quick and simple, you just have to copy and paste the email, and type in the subject "Skype for the BlackBerry Playbook". As for the Tweets, say whatever you want, but a basic "Please, we want Skype for the BlackBerry Playbook!" Should do. Thank you for your time in advance. Twitter Page:

I am emailing on February 1st, with the subject line "Skype for the BlackBerry Playbook", will you?

The Email (again, feel free to use your own variation, just keep true to our spirit!):

Dear Mr. Neil Stevens/Mr. Tony Bates,

I am emailing you today for one simple reason, I, and many others, want a Skype app for the BlackBerry Playbook.

We understand that when you develop an app, you want to be sure it will succeed, and we respect that, but we believe a Skype app for the BlackBerry Playbook would succeed. First of all, while Skype may be waiting for Playbook sales to increase before developing an app, I know for a fact that a lot of people are put off by the fact that the Playbook doesn't have Skype, and possibly even avoid buying a Playbook because of it. Essentially, your app could generate more business for the Playbook, which would in turn generate more business for said app. Also, with the Playbooks two cameras, 1080p video, and stereo microphones, Skype could be a better experience on the Blackberry Playbook than most laptops, and certainly the iPad or Android tablets. Additionally, with the BlackBerry Playbook's OS 2.0 update coming in February, critics and fans alike are anticipating a truly great operating system for the tablet, and a large increase in sales. There are so many reasons Skype would be successful for the BlackBerry Playbook, and so many reasons you should develop it. The biggest reason? We want it, not to sound demanding, but this is what the consumer wants.

I don't have to tell you why your program is so great, it brings people together across the world, and it provides great work opportunites for companies that frequently use telecomuting. From soldiers speaking with their kids across the ocean, but face to face, to companies working out mergers, to kids in their basements talking about video games; Skype brings people together, and keeps the world interconnected in a way that no other VoIP or Video Chatting software even remotely rivals. We want Skype for the BlackBerry Playbook, and we think you should want it too.

Thank you for your time, sincerely,

The Consumer
