Will someone from Skype please have the decency to respond to this thread.

The continuing lack of response is reflecting very poorly on your customer relations.

Novel Adventurer only supports chat, not audio or video calls! So it's only useful if you don't have an account with gmail or another chat provider

Why am I not able to use SKYPE on the RIM playbook. I just don't understand. RIM has been a large part of the Microsoft's Exchange success story over the last 10-12 years. At least explain your reasons why you are/will not support the RIM Playbook? The use of IMO which you are suggesting is just not an alternative for me.


I have been a  user of Microsoft Software over many years (and use the Windows version of skype). However, I am now the owner of an Ipod touch (on which I do use Skype) and a RIM Playbook (my primary travel device) . I cannot use the iPad has it is not available in a convenient form factor.
