Another bombshell out of CES, Skype has just announced they are buying Qik for an undisclosed amount. They expect the acquisition to be completed by the end of January.

Along with this announcement is a joint release from NVIDIA, Motorola and Skype that there definitely is going to be a Video component capability in the next release of Skype.

My guess is they couldn't get their own to work so they bought Qik for their expertise and technologies. Either way, hopefully this mean Video chat is coming soon!
