    hi not sure if this has been covered as yet, but I have been hearing they don't work with skype or the camera does not on it anyway, although I have also heard they do work well with skype. So, what is the truth.

    Waiting for my one to turn up which is the Flytouch 3 SuperPad 2 Android Tablet 10.2.

    Can some put us right about this side of things please. :confused:

    Skype texting and voice calls work... from my opinion i think google block the video calling part of skype from wifi only tablets

    I tested it on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wifi. Voice worked, but no video. My test partner said his screen showed that my device does not support video. I'm hoping they'll work an update for it.

    As of August 15 with all updates Skype voice and messaging works great on my Toshiba Thrive. No video either direction though.

    I just got an Asus Transformer and was disappointed to see that Skype Video didn't work.
    Has anyone had any experience with Fring?

    Google video chat works nicely on the Transformer. More reliable than Skype.
