    Actually it is VERY similar to Skype in that you can call computer to mobile device and vice versa but where I like it better is that it uses less bandwith, it has better picture quality and to conference call with up to 6 people is free compared to Skype. I've also used Skype and OoVoO on Android devices and it works sooo much better. Idk how they compare performance wise on an iPhone or iPod Touch but I imagine they both work pretty good. Again, my main reason is the bandwith and video quality is much better and laslty because OoVoO is not attached exclusively to one carrier.

    I forgot to add that there is a way to add your contacts from Skype and I think, not 100% sure because I haven't tried it yet but you can call Skype contacts from within OoVoO and even receive threads and updates from FaceBook on it as well. You should try it and do reveiw on it, it's awesome!

    oovoo isn't available for BlackBerry smartphones. Skype is at least available for BlackBerry smartphone users that have Verizon. I also don't see any plans for oovoo to make their app for any BlackBerry devices.

    Have you tried oovoo through the PlayBook's browser?

    Skype on Playbook

    Tried this and the short is, it is painful...does not do video at all and you cannot get it to save your password and in addition it wants you to try to type in an almost impossible chatter thing that is really hard to do on PP....all to say 2 0ut of 10maybe

    Nice thing is that Skype should be coming out with a PB app soon.
