Re: downloading skype

Thanks! The playbook is an awesome business tool as well as some fun to keep you off work while in airports and such! Very happy so far with the tablet and glad I didn't go with the IPad 2. Sorry Apple!

I've found that you can put ALL of your favorite pictures, sort them into albums. Great way to keep pictures of your family, friends, and loved ones.

Re: downloading skype

In spite of the above answers that claim Skype is "in the works" or "will be here soon", in actual fact Skype itself has said they are NOT working on a PlayBook version right now, and are waiting until at least some future time when, basically, there are a lot more PlayBooks sold.

 

For now, people are pointed to the imo.im site, where you can use Skype in a limited fashion via the web or other, likely also web-based, options.
