iPad Set to Get Skype

Skype is coming to the iPad. The company’s VoIP and video chat application is expected to debut on Apple’s best-selling tablet in the very near future. Taking advantage of the iPad 2′s dual camera set up, the video chat arm of Skype will allow users to take advantage of picture-in-picture capabilities, as well as a bigger view of their chat partner(s). For iPad 1 users, only VoIP will be available through the application. Skype, the current worldwide leader in video chat, will battle FaceTime, Apple’s home-grown video chat app, as well as an expected future Google play in this space.
