    Yes, it will come, but in what way we don't know for sure yet. It may come in the form of data only through the 3G PlayBook via Verizon. This is how the handsets are setup now, so it wouldn't surprise me if Verizon continues to hold Skype for BlackBerry.

    But, I've heard that Skype will also come to the PB in general with WiFi support. We'll keep you updated on anything new on this.

    Smile thankyou

    many thanks for your reply and providing me with some reassurance.
    We really hope that the WI FI version of skype appears soon for the playbook, and we are able to dowload a Skype app directly from the Blackberry App store.
    We would love to keep in video contact with friends and family who are residing in distant places and who are successfully running Skype on their portable laptop pc's.
    All the very best,
    John.

SKYPE you stink ......

    Currently, there is no Skype for the BlackBerry PlayBook, but you can use Skype through a website with the browser on your Playbook.

    Open the browser, enter the website https://imo.im , choose Skype, enter your username and password, login, search your contact,choose call or video call or chat.

    Hope this helps you, or anyone else who wishes to Skype on their BlackBerry PlayBook as an alternate option.

    Thank you.

    Mr Grimreaper,
    I knew about this alternate website but it doesn't work, and if you get it to work, it only works for a bit but most of the time it will not work .... it is kind of annoying .... but i do appreciate your helpful attitude .

    I feel your frustration. Verizon holds the monopoly on Skype for now. I'm also disappointing on how RIM's response has been to get these apps available for all BB devices. Only time will tell for now. We'll let you all know as soon as it happens.

    Yeah Skype you better get your act together soon.. Else I am going to rally everyone who owns a BB like me but you don't think they are important enough to be considered for an app ....would start to boycott of its usage..... then might just have to buckle down and invent something better than your App across all os platforms and kick your selfish and self centered butts..... Don't make us do that!!!!
