    Yeah, any MIDx024 that upgrades to a CFW with Gingerbread (Android 2.3) should be able to run video chat. I've already tested Skype, Tango and Fring. ;)

    MIDx024 means any Kyros models MID7024, MID8024 or MID1024. They don't come with Gingerbread out of the box, but there are custom ROMs for all them now. The 7022 and new models (1125, 8125, 7125, 7127 and 1126) come with Gingerbread from factory. Generally speaking, any tablet with a camera and Gingerbread should work with Skype video conference, but it's a good idea to verify it for the model you want first.

    FYI. MID7125 here with factory Android 2.3. Skype is not working.

    I just got this one. The big problem is the color of the video. My blue shirt looks like light red shirt and my face is gray.

    I just ordered Coby MID8125 and hope it has better result.

    Does anyone has good experience on the skype chat with tablet less than $150?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I installed android 2.3 on my 7024 with following link
    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/coby-generation-2-development/24713-cfw-mid7024-based-alldro2-gingerbread.html

    But when I installed Skype with skype site and try to make video calls it ask me to buy skype credits. For my friends skype display me as a phone.
    Can you give me the location you installed the skype?
