I tried Skype(beta) for playbook, 2012 version, and it is discharging my battery rapidly. I can get 2 days with IM+ and wireless on, about 20+ hours of work. With new Skype I have less than 10 hours. What a **** is that software doing??? It is only chat software and I didn't even have any chats one day. That is one bad peace of software.

Just to prevent people being misled, some of the posters claiming to have inside info in this thread have been proven wrong in the past, or at the very least given reason to doubt them.
People ought not to buy products thinking key apps are on the way if they cant live without it.
If the app is a dealbreaker for you, wait till its officially released before you count on it being on the platform, thats the only way to be sure.

@QuIcKsIlV3r I hope you're right. Even so, unless they have a definite stable release in sight, without a working app in place I doubt we'll see Skype officially announced at the launch event.

Seems like your inside info tallies nicely with whatever rumours are circulating at the time, if youve actually handled a BB10 device with a Skype beta on it, and youre comfortable saying your friend works as a network engineer at RIM, surely an anonymous screenshot of the beta is in order.
Otherwise your comments are optimistic at best and misleading at worst.
Rather than people believing them blindly, its fair to say if Skypes important, people should wait for an official unveil before believing its coming.

And all I will say is that it IS a proper FULLY FUNCTIONAL native Skype app (however it is integrated )
