According to RIM's financial reports they have over 1 million Playbook owners out there so far; isn't that worth something in terms of revenue for Skype. And that number is bound to increase with new apps becoming available all the time.
How many Playbook users does it take ? How difficult is it to adapt Skype to the Playbook ?
Availability of Skype on the Playbook would definitely be an incentive for more people to purchase a Playbook, hence more users of Skype !
Let's hope that the fact that Skype isn't reponding to these posts is due to the fact that they are in the process of developing for the Playbook and do not want to start a rumor.
I totally agree ... Is this a conspiracy from Microsoft not to support another operating system if they can help it???this goes against the principle of Skype, free and for everyone.
Plenty of playbook users would pay a few bucks for the app, that's half a million bucks for skype even if only a quarter of users bought it. A lot of them would buy a premium account as they are business users, the target audience for MS and RIM.
I've stopped using skype for the time being since I bought the playbook for business and assumed that it would work... very dissapointing.
For now, I'll resort to whatsapp until they implement something. Seems trivial and if anything, an immediate revenue genertor given the install based of Playbook's sold.
I too would have bought Skype premium.
