SkYPE

Once again, I am stuck in upper case in the subject field and I have TWO cursor locations! One in subject field the other in the text field. Not funny.

 

But it is not why I am writing.  The email I received from BlackBerry this morning about the Q10 shows Skype on the screen of the device. So maybe once we figure out why is the generation of topics on this board is so screwed up, we will have Skype on the PlayBook.

Re: SkYPE

Yes, BlackBerry 10 does have Skype. I think Skype will be made available on the PlayBook when the PB has BB10 Update.

Re: SkYPE

Now if we can 'sideload' converted Android apps, surely someone can figure out how to sideload a BB10 app, no? Just kidding, or maybe not?

Re: SkYPE

Hello godot11.
I understand your frustration. You could try browsing to imo for Skype through the browser. I have tested the bar file for Z10, again it is android port as Skype promised. I can The same version of Skype does not work on the PB as of yet.

We have had a Skype sideload for months. The OS2 android player will not offer access to camera or microphone so it will only work for text.

 

Re the editing problem, this forum is not compatible with playbooks on first post in the thread. You can save a short message then edit or reply to yourself, or use a laptop.
