    Skype for Android just got better, and covers more devices now. The newest version of Skype, 2.5, is available now, and it brings with it a few improvements as well as video talk capabilities and compatibility with 14 more devices. First, here is a list of the newly added devices (of note is that several of them are Android tablets that have been sorely missing the software):
    • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
    • HTC Nexus One
    • HTC Shooter
    • Sony Ericsson Xperia Live with Walkman
    • Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V
    • LG Optimus Black
    • LG Optimus 3D
    • LG Optimus 2x
    • Motorola Photon
    • Motorola Droid 3
    • Motorola Bionic
    • Motorola Xoom
    • Motorola Atrix
    • Acer Iconia
    Here's a list of the new improvements to the app:
    • Enhanced video experience
    • Rotate and zoom during video calls
    • Support for Nvidia Tegra2 powered devices
    • Video calling enabled by default on more devices
    • Revised user interface for message history
    • Improved support for Bluetooth headsets
    • New emoticons
    • Support for editing and deleting IM messages
    • Support for joining a call
    • Advertising for non-paying subscribers
    It's been a long time coming, but it's great to see it available for these devices, and the new enhancements look useful. What do you guys think?
