The iPhone version of the Skype app has been a tremendous success, giving users truly mobile access to their Skype account. But for iPad users, we have been forced to use the iPhone Skype app since there has never been an official Skype app for iPad. Well, that is about to change!
After a leaked video hit the web today posted by RazorianFly, speculation ran high that Skype for iPad was on its way. This news now seems to be confirmed, as TUAW reports on a conversation with Skype VP of Consumer and Product Design Rick Osterloh who discussed the upcoming iPad app and what Skype expects to get out of it.
Osterloh reveals that the Skype iPad app will be similar to the iPhone app, including many of the same features such as chatting, audio and video calling, and all of the many standard actions users know and love from Skype.
On the note of what did not make it to the iPad version of Skype, Osterloh reports that the ability to do file sharing will not be available. However this is expected because of how the iPad deals with individual files.
There is no official release date, but it should be available soon!
