    Why Skype doesn't support video calling [Yet?]

    If you notice their was an update for Skype earlier around August 4, and it updates includes video calling for multiple different phones.
    Do you still wonder why honeycomb still didn't get it? Well, I know that the Samsung galaxy tab has it [not 10.1], and its not that powerful.
    When I mean powerful, I mean the hardware. Yes, the hardware in SGT isn't that great. You'll know why.

    Now, I've found recently on a community page at Skype that honeycomb doesn't support video calling. Here's why:
    " We've released a new update to our app today that adds videocalling to more devices, *but*
    you still won't be able to do video calling on the Asus Eee Pad Transformer (as well as other tablets with the Nvidia chipset)
    because the Nvidia supported handsets currently do not meet the technical requirements to enable Skype video calling.
    I'm sorry that I can't share any better information with you. "

    The community manager posted this, here is the citation.
    skype video on honeycomb 3.1? - Skype Support Network

    Sucks?, Yea it does, if my iPhone 4 can run video, then why can't a tegra 2 device run it?
    * This is just telling you about it, since people complain a lot, anyways, Skype will figure a way to work this. Hopefully !

    Same here, only if my friends have oovoo then it wouldn't be a problem.
    I guess I'll use my iPhone for the webcam and my xoom for chats

    Bull pucky, only reason it doesn't work is cause they don't want it to work yet, for whatever reason. Remember hearing Netflix couldn't work on our tabs either yet here it is working.

    There is probably some truth to that....
