    I am not a video chat person but this is a good news for those waiting on skype to deliver an app for playbook.

    That would be a good step in the right direction. All we need is this online playbook to desktop video chat app that works decently instead of skype. imo.im is a little difficult to use.

    I'm watching the live stream of the announcement right now and it appears a plugin will be required for the browser. I'm really hoping that it works with the PlayBook browser, but as someone alluded to in my other post about this subject, it may just take an update to our tablet-ready facebook app (that iPad doesn't have :P ).

    I just tried it on my PC and it made me download and install a setup.exe. So don't hold your breath.. I'll go try on my PB now and add an update here..


    UPDATE: Nope.. Doesn't work on the PB..
