Anyway yet to video call between PB & other devices?

I know Skype doesn't work, why they don't there must be some reason, licensing issue or something, but is there any other way to video chat between a playbook and an Android phone for example yet?

I hear this all the time and thought it would have a solution by now. I've ordered a second playbook as think there really great little tablets, but need to video chat between other devices to

Download ComWave ePhone on your Playbook. You get a phone number. You can call any phone number in Canada and US FOR FREE!


This is new. Not even Skype offers a free number and free calls to Canada and US!


It does video call. I have not tried video calling to a Skype #. May be you can tell me.


P.S. I find Playbook video chat works very well provided you have a good Wifi link.

Use www.faceflow.com This programme is exactly the same as skype but better, It has video conferencing. Both the sender and receiver must log into the site, become 'friends', same as skype. That's all there is to it. Oh, by the way it is cross o/s as it uses the site through a browser.  Hope this helps
