A few days ago I posted the first picture of the BlackBerry App World running on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, taken at CES 2011. At first glance there doesn’t seem to be anything special other than this being the first image showing the App World on the PlayBook, but a friend of mine pointed something out that will surely excite many of you. If you look at the image above you’ll notice it shows a bunch of applications like BBM, MSN Messenger, Facebook and others, but it turns out the PlayBook will also be getting a Skype application.
Considering a dedicated Skype app has only been available for BlackBerry smartphones on the Verizon Wireless network, this is a significant development. While this doesn’t mean the Skype app will be available on smartphones not on Verizon’s network anytime soon, at least PlayBook owners will be able to enjoy video chatting/conferencing since distribution isn’t limited to certain carriers.
Knowing that Skype will be available on the PlayBook tablet, would you get it if certain BlackBerry apps were only available for the PlayBook, or are you getting it regardless?
