Wow, I was browsing thru the comments and there were Zero reply from Skype. Helloo is there anyone there? When can we have Skype for the BB Playbook?????????????
For what it is worth
Using splashdot onBBPB I was able to call echo test call hear the young lady's voice but alas notot my own.
So near yet so far
The problem is not with Skype. It is freeking Microsoft that bought Skype. It's not a big issue to change the app into .bar extension it will take the skype programmers like two days to make it. They do not replay because there is no excuse not to make the applet for Blackberry playbook. that is the best ever tablet for every one. some suggested to try hebrew pleading. well here it goes "בבקשה תוציאו אפליקציה לפלייבוק. או לפחות תתנו תשובה ראויה לשמה בפורום"
Going through my old toys I dusted off My Nokia 800
It still has a custom version of skype that works great
Betcha there are a hell of a lot more Playbooks on line than the Nokia's
Come on Skype I am a paying customer as opposed to just using it for the freebies
Lets have a Skype for Playbook
Current guess is that there are several million playbooks out in the field
As sales gain traction they make skype for playbook a much more attractive proposition.
What really ducks that people are expecting it. No worries, just like how dropbox is being childish and box.com came along with 50gb for free for PlayBook owners and an app, OoVoO will hopefully have a PlayBook app.
Guess what a PlayBook app will be compatible with the new OS 10 that is coming out for the handsets, then we will see how BB owners will drop skype for OoVoO like they have forgotten about us!
I mean seriously, they claim to be a company who supports any and all platforms but not yet an official response here!
SHAME ON YOU SKYPE!!
Truly Sad, Truly!!
