Why no Skype?
Okay, so my friend has a lovely new android tablet preloaded with the lovely Skype. I was soooo exited that I could chat to her using my playbook. It was then I realized voice chat was playbook to playbook. AND with no Skype on the computer I cannot chat with her.
I'm sure there's a thousand other reasons to have Skype on PlayBook that I can't think of but I'm love to hear them

please express your desire to skype. hopefully they are secretly working on something that will fit your needs. skype is not on playbook at this time. case closed.
try http://www.aol.com/av/ it is an alternative that will work with both tablets at this time

Here's some light reading (minimum 300 post worth ) for you from the Skype site - no answers there just questions. BB Users can't understand the reasoning either.
Re: Skype for BlackBerry PlayBook - Page 30 - Skype Support Network
Also, there are many forum postings on CB that discuss this as well. Just use the search function in the top right hand corner

There is no reason, but Skype is not available for BB devices because Skype doesn't want to devel this application for BB devices, that's all.
AND with no Skype on the computer I cannot chat with her

FaceFlow will soon suit your needs. It currently has Mac, PC, iOS and Android applications. They have confirmed that they will support BB 10. So, once BB 10 is available for the Playbook, your problem will be solved. Cheers. ~ecm
