Well, if that isn't exciting news for future consumers of the PlayBook and fans of Skype, I don't know what it is.
The above picture was recently leaked and while at first glance it looks exciting because it's the first picture of the App World on the PlayBook, but upon closer inspection... There's an application for Skype! If you don't know, Skype has been available for some RIM devices but only on the Verizon network.
"While this doesn’t mean the Skype app will be available on smartphones not on Verizon’s network anytime soon, at least PlayBook owners will be able to enjoy video chatting/conferencing since distribution isn’t limited to certain carriers."
