I just download the Skype application for PS Vita and tried it. It seems promessing but I experienced a small minor issue (which would be, I think, easy to fix).
When I pick a contact in my contacts list, the application displays only one way to call this contact.
For example, if I have a contact with a Skype account and one landline phone I associated with this person, only the Skype can be selected for a call (no display of the landline phone number).
Another example, I have a contact I saved with a landline and a mobile phone number (this person doesn't have any Skype account) : when I select this contact, only the landline phone number is displayed (I did not find any way to pick the mobile phone number).
I know I can "manually" call those numbers but I have a small memory so it would be nice if Skype could display those numbers . If you have any solution for this problem, could you tell me ?
Thank you for your answer.
If you click a contact and then click call you should then in the next step be able to choose whether you want to make a Skype to Skype call or a call to a phone number.

Unfortunatly, it gives me no choice when I click on "Call" : it directly calls the person using the single displayed way.
However, I discovered something strange : when I enter "manually" a contact phone number (that the application refuses to display in this contact profile) and call it, it recognizes the contact name. So, I guess the link between the number and the contact is well done by the application. Finally, when I stop the "manual" call, it drops me on the contact profile screen (but the number I just called is still not displayed).
When I open the Skype contact detail, I only see one possibility. I put those pictures to show you the issue with two of my contacts on the PS Vita display (for privacy purpose, I add hidden parts) :
As you see on this contact, only a call through the Skype account can be selected (no mobile numbers available).
As you can see on this contact (who doesn't have a Skype account), only the landline phone can be called (not the saved mobile phone).
