    So I was watching the latest episode and noticed the Damien Lewis's character having a video chat on skype with a bb curve!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the Curve even has a front-facing camera. This just seems like a little cinematic detail to me.

    Plus it doesn't make any sense that Skype builds an app for a dead platform

    BlackBerry has always supported Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, Google Talk (chat) etc. So, I think the "Skype" field that has been spotted is simply because Microsoft has shutdown Windows Messenger and switched to Skype as their messenger. So, the Skype is the new windows messenger. So, just because there is a Skype field, it doesn't mean that RIM is giving us ability to voice/video chat using Skype. It could be just text-based-chat like we used to have in Windows Messenger. No voice, no video.

    That said, I wish they'd allow full Skype (with video and voice). It may not be most-used app but it's one of the most downloaded apps on other platforms. People want it even if they don't use it much. And for RIM to succeed, it's important that they support as many top-downloaded/top-voted/most-used apps at launch. They haven't released a new phone in over a year and have had plenty of time to work on their new QNX based BB 10. So, I hope they get it done in-time. If top-app makers are not keen on developing for BB 10, RIM can do the development for them. RIM already develops the Facebook, Twitter etc app internally. It could do the same for Skype, Kindle, Netflix, Hulu etc.
    I posted this in another thread. Thought it'd be appropriate here.

    Can the Verizon exclusive Skype app just do audio, or video as well? (Video only from the caller obviously).

    One point to add though, Homeland producers wouldn't have inserted this unless both RIM and Skype paid them to advertise.

    Skype will be the external device that you attach to BB10 according to my friend who know someone who develop the device.
