    Welcome to the forum!

    You can try to find it to download on your PC. Check the market for the latest version, then google for "Skype 2.8.0 apk" and see what you can find. (APK are similar to .exe on Windows). Next, transfer it to your tablet however you are most comfortable (Drobox, USB, Email, external storage, WiFi, FTP).

    You will have to enable unknown sources to install apps. Android 3.X and older, this is in Settings - Apps - Unknown Sources. Android 4.X it is in Settings - Privacy & Security - Unknown sournces.

    Now just run the APK and it should install and then see if it works.

    Keep in mind, doing it this way could open yourself up to a virus or malware if the site you downalod from happens to have an infected file. It is not recommended to do this if at all possible.

    Hi Jassi, it appears my friend Frederuco has already answered your question, so I'll just say, "Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new tablet." Enjoy the tablet and the forum!

    Also, I know there is a problem with a version not working w/ICS. I had to revert to an older one on my tablet. Not sure if they fixed the problem. but he is right, you'll need to "side-load" the app if the market wont see your device as working with skype. it still should work with right version.

    v2.8.0.920 is the current one in the Google Play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.skype.raider

    Works on my tablet (based on Android 4.0.3).
    Sometimes tablet manufacturers hack the OS so much, and still claim "ICS", and a lot of things don't work.
    Google should really publish their Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) as an app, and we can weed out the overly-deviant tablet manufacturers.

    I have also bought this tablet. Didn't find a single application which works for video chat. Not sure what all tweaking has been done to the OS for this tablet
