I am the proud owner (one day) on a 64gb unit. I was assured by the guy at the shop where I made an enquiry that this Blackberry would allow 'Skype'. I can't see any apps that allow video skype. Can anyone advise please?
How can it be done and is there an application that allows video skype.
Solved! Go to Solution.

He misled you. Playbooks do not run Skype in current OS 2.0, will not run in the beta OS 2.1 so assume will not run Skype with video until next year at earliest if we get BB10. Even then who knows.
You can sideload Skype for Android in chat/voice only.

Thank you for the prompt reply.
Bummer about Skype. Ah well! Laptop still serves for that. Perhaps the salesman thought I was going to put Android o/s on the Tablet. Can't complain. This tablet is excellent.

There are web based alternatives for mixed platforms, like reelportal.com and one from AOL but they sometimes have drawbacks on speed, echo and access.
If you know anyone else with a playbook the Video Chat PB to PB is excellent, like Apples Face Time Apple to Apple service. Problem is there's loads of Appletizers out there but not so many Facebookers.
Otherwise I love my Playbooks
