Any update for SKYPE on Blackberry Playbook?

Please...any update on SKYPE to BB PB?

Very frustated that RIM didn't take any action on their customer request...I bought this PB, mostly the purpose is to use SKYPE as communication tools to my Family but sad to know that you can't have on PB.

It is up to She told develop the app. As of right now NOTHING. As far as purchasing the playbook for skype you should have done your homework. It was well documented. You can have your family use reelportal in app world.

Re: Any update for SKYPE on Blackberry Playbook?

In my opinion,both Skype and NetFlix are on their way out. With the costs of Data Plans always going up, while the amount of data you get always going down, it won't be long before no one can afford to use services like Skype and NetFlix. This is what happens when telecommunications providers become Television Broadcasters as well. Very sad.

Re: Any update for SKYPE on Blackberry Playbook?

The proof is in the pudding. People have been screaming for Netflix and Skype from day one.

 

RIM ignores their requests.

 

I don't know where you guys are from but are you aware that RIM is almost broke?..losing market share daily. I'm in Canada, home of RIM where there are daily news stories about their woes. They are going no where fast. The 16 GB playbook is being given away for a fraction of their cost ....nobody wants it. Check the Canadian media stories.
