Skype for BlackBerry PlayBook

When can we expect skype for the BlackBerry PlayBook? I just bought it on July 18th, 2011 and love it. My BlackBerry Messenger works perfectly but would like to use a genuine version of skype with my PlayBook.

Re: Skype for BlackBerry PlayBook

I just bought a playbook - it is August 18th, and I had to fly to North America to get it. 

 

I am just wondering if there is a timeline on when skype will write the code to allow it to work with the QNX software? As the playbook is just about to be launched in Europe and with the new QNX phones coming 1st quarter 2012 - wouldnt it be nice if you were to do it for us?

 

I mean I am a paying skype customer - but loyal to the point where something new comes and works on my BB....then you will loose me forever....

 

Think about it.

Re: Skype for BlackBerry PlayBook

It would be nice if SKYPE (which I love) would support Blackberry and the Blackberry Playbook. A great many Blackberry users are businessmen...and I use SKYPE for business quite often. I will try the IMO workaround...but would appreciate a SKYPE ap for the Blackberry Playbook. 

 

Thanks
