Hi, I've had playbook for about two weeks and so far I love it.
I was looking through blackberry website and saw this app world screenshots and I'm seeing this skype app in it. I took a screenshot see the attachment.
Since I am new on this tablet world, I don't know if it's just false ad to lure the consumers to buy this tablet, or if this is available only for beta.
I am just confused...
sorry if this topic is a repeat.

Yay! A pretty picture!
Google is your friend. PlayBook plus skype equals no.
If you base your purchase on a picture or commercials you kinda get what you were after...a picture.

I don't know - does IM+ have skype or not?
The website seems to indicate that...
"Chat within MSN, Yahoo!, Google Talk™, AIM, MySpace™, Jabber, ICQ, Facebook and Skype™"

the smartest way to look for apps is to search it via the app world installed on ur PB itself. that way only the apps that are compatible with the PB will show up...... if u go and look now there is no skype advertised there.

And people wonder why the naysayers and whiners and complainers still frequent this place - Because rim is still misleading folks about the pb. And old threads saying that Skype does not exist does not bring people up-to-date - skype still DOES NOT EXIST even if Rim shows its logo on the rim/pb site.

I dunno - I think a lot of people mislead themselves, made assumptions - this skype hype all came from a picture of a playbook with a skype logo on it, right? Good chance that at the time they really thought they would have it.
Didn't anyone do any hard research to confirm it was available before jumping the gun?
Sorry, no sympathy...

Now my crack team of law experts are getting a case together...I was driving down a bumpy road in the rain and the Michelin man did NOT show up and throw new tires on my car....and the batch of sea monkeys I bought...there's no glasses on the dad one...at least I think it's the dad...

take siri for example...at first glance...the commercial depicts it as a flawlessly working fully developed program, that will interpret natural speech patterns with stunning accuracy...while in a tiny orange square nestled next to the siri blurb that you have to SEARCH for on the apple website...it says BETA...nowhere on the commercial...
but, I guess that's ok for apple to do...since they're the popular kid...
