Skype For iPad & iPhone HD To Launch This Summer?

May 13, 2010

Skype's Asia-Pacific VP, Dan Neary, apparently gave some interesting insights to iPodNN today about the future of Skype's popular iPhone app.

According to him, Skype would be finally working on bringing the iPhone Skype app to the iPad. Kinda late you're saying? Well, they might actually have a good excuse for the delay. Indeed, on top of (secretly) testing out Apple's new VoIP APIs, Skype is believed to be prepping something for the iPhone HD, which comes with a front-facing camera.

Here is his quote:

We believe that video is part of the Skype experience and we believe that video is moving aggressively into the mobile environment, so stay tuned on an announcement on that.

After iChat, Skype is probably Apple's next most logical partner to work this out so that might actually be true. Anyway, it's scheduled for this summer so we'll find out soon enough.
