    Has anyone got Skype (just the messaging, obviously ) running? When I try I get to the title page and that's it.

    this is what happened to me:

    there is a button at the very bottom of that page, you need to press it to continue

    its very hard to press because the bottom notification bar is blocking most of it, but you can def get it after a few tries

    Thanks very much for the advice, you got it exactly right. There was just a sliver visible which I hadn't noticed.
    All up and running now :)

    Just the messaging. As far as I'm aware the calls side can't be used yet, roll on bluetooth

    At this point, I doubt seriously that the Nook will be able to utilize skype. The audio components in it were not designed to handle a mic. Of course they did this to keep the price down...even though I can see a legit reason for having audio input in the Nook Color (unrooted, just as a good e-reader), B&N did not, or they felt it was not cost effective.

    I've seen a lot about Skype for tablets (which I have got). It doesn't work (when you launch it momentarily shows the splash screen, and then dies). I contacted Skye support and they were quite clear that they have no software available which would allow Skype to access their system using a domestic wi-fi router. May happen but not specific about when.

    You need an older version of Skype. Look for Skype (Beta).apk can't find the link at the moment
