Skype app on iPad: this may be the right time! (June 28th, that is!)
This time may be the right time: the iPad (specifically the iPad 2) is getting an iPad-specific version of the beloved Skype app – with working cameras!
That’s cool for most users that still haven’t moved to the Facetime side of modern communication!
ZDNet has been able to preview the iPad-specific version of the Skype app and published several new pics along some pretty info.
Performance issues and worries?
Although Skype for iPad will work on both iPad versions, you’ll only be able to broadcast video from the iPad 2, since it has a front-facing camera.
You can still receive video on an original iPad. Skype for iPad will work on both Wi-Fi and 3G, but it was quick to point out that video quality might take a hit on slower 3G connections, and we were quick to verify that Skype quality is often subpar over 3G.
Available – for free – starting June 28th!
