Skype for iPad Being Released on Tuesday

by on June 26th, 2011

Earlier we posted about Skype for iPad details being leaked. Now, CNET has confirmed the app will be hitting the App Store on Tuesday, as they went hands on with the app.

Skype for iPad will work over WiFi and 3G and support video calling. iPad owners will only be able to receive video, but iPad 2 owners can broadcast due to the front-facing camera. Essentially, it’ll be like the Skype for iPhone app but for the iPad. Could it be competition for Apple’s FaceTime? Maybe. But Skype requires a bit more setup versus FaceTime’s one-click setup.

Stay tuned as we’ll keep updates posted. Tuesday can’t come any sooner! Here are a couple screenshots via CNET:

    Awesome!   I’ve been using Skype for the iPhone on my iPad2 – which has worked OK.  It’ll be nice to have a true iPad version.

    Ok it’s Tuesday.  Don’t see the app yet.  Maybe it’s being limited to the U.S.?  Can anyone see it?
