13 New Devices Receive Skype Video Calling Support, Also Brings More Ads

Video Calling has now been added to another 13 devices for those who have been waiting patiently for Skype’s popular added functionality.  However, with that, a small price in the form of more ads accompanies it.  If you happen to have any Skype credits laying around, this should assist in avoiding the ads, however, it’s more than likely most of you don’t.  Check out the list of devices below to ensure yours is supported.  And if you currently don’t have Skype downloaded onto your device and want it, you can snatch it up here on our popular apps database where you’ll also find a QR code available.  In addition, you can grab the free app from the Android Market for added convenience.  Don’t forget to let us know what you think of the application and its new functionality in the comments below.  Happy Skyping everyone.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
