Video Chat Playbook - PC ?

Hi everyone, 

 

I'm thinking in buying a Playbook, but i wanted to know if it was possible to videochat from a playbook to a pc via an app? I read on the Internet that skype is not availaible for playbook... 

 

If anyone knows something about that. 

 

Thank-you. 

 

Nico.

Video Chat only works between PlayBooks. Skype is a Microsoft product and is not available as yet. There are some phone apps available where you can call worldwide. The one I have is ComWave and I believe it is available only to Canadians. There may be other phone apps available, do your homework.

Hi, 

 

Thanks i'll chek this app. 

 

@Lost_at_Sea : I did my homework, don't be agressive, if i ask it is because i didn't find. So if you only have this kind of words, don't say anything. Thank you. 

 

Does ReelContact works well with PCs ? 

 

Thank you.

Well I'll be...:Eek:...something that actually works on a playbook without having to use any ridiculous apps.

 

I'm sure RIM will figure out a way to block it.
