Re: Skype

The sideloaded version works well

 

If you have a version with functional audio, where did you get it from?

For some reason, I thought the BlackBerry forums were a place where one can get some help and support by the BlackBerry personel and the user community, and not a playground for immature persons to exercise their limited mental capabilities. But replies such as this tell me I was wrong.
For the rest reading this forum: there is still no proper Skype for the PlayBook.

Re: Skype

Don't be offended. There are veterans on here who have an over sensitive reaction to any thoughts of open architecture, sideloading, experimentation - in fact much  like RIM themselves.  Luddites is what we call it in my country.

 

The simple answer is android simulation does not have access to camera and in many cases the mIc, which means even if you manage to google a Skype .bar file, at the moment it will not work.

 

Any suggestion by the ultra conservative RIM supporters that Skype is not important to most (ok not all) users is just head-in-the-sand stuff.  Microsoft bought skype go replace Netmeeting and they have already started to commercialise it. Ignore Skype at your peril, whatever company you are.
