Go Skype Go!!!
I really hope the Skype team at least considers working on this cause we're the only ones with out video calling on our mobile phones, even though all of the original symbian^3 phones (N8, C7, C6-01, E7) have a secondary camara for video calling
Seriously guys... Its Hell waiting for a video call on C7 / N8 from skype for Sooooooooooooooooo Longg... Come On Skype Guys... what the hell r u all doing.. just busy buttering Microsoft that u wont release anything now that works on any other platform other than windows 7.x !!
Dont think it should be such a big problem for skype developers to give such a known and small feature.... even after such a big outcry from public !!
OK, here is the story.
There was SKYPE on my N95, couple years ago with VIDEO supported. Since google bought SKYPE, they stop supporting a video for all symbian devices.
Now, SKYPE is owned by microsoft since may 2011 but looks like same policy for banning SKYPE for Symbian devices. It's shame but ...
I'm using Fring on my N8, also on my PC. My brother live 8000 miles away and we can make great video calls over HSPA (3.5G) network. He has Iphone 4.
I'm just hoping, that Skype team will release a version for symbian in near feature.
WWW dot FRING dot COM
so far none of the representatives of Skype, did not answer the question: "Is expected in the near future, the video version for Symbian?».
Symbian ignored by Skype? (35-40% of users in the world)
Not holding my breath here, both Nokia and Skype are Microsoft batty boys now and have no interest in the success or failure in Symbian, infact, Nokia would like us all to ditch what we have an opt for one of their new Windows phones.
Its all politics as we know its possible, my old Nokia n900 (great phone until my son dropped it) had Skype inbtegrated into the kernal and fron facing camera worked great, the whole Skype experience on that one was amazing.
So when the replacement for my dropped n900 arrived .. a Symbian E7 ... I sighed, shrugged my shoulders and embraced what I had, downloaded Skype and was bemused to find no camera? Comon ... this is retrograde progress!
I used to be one of Skypes & Nokia's biggest fans but to me they are now part of the Evil Empire and I am actively looking at the best Android replacement Sony Experia Pro? (need the keyboard man)
Shame on you Skype and shame on you Nokia.
