Skype adds video calling support for 17 more Android devices, including the 7-inch Galaxy Tab and Flyer

New, 38 comments

Skype's unreasonably tiny list of Android handsets supported for video calling has grown considerably today. Version 2.1 of the company's software adds compatibility for marquee smartphones like HTC's Sensation, Samsung's Galaxy S II, and Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play, while also doling out the usual enhancements and bug squashes you'd expect. What might have been less predictable is the addition of HTC's Flyer and Samsung's Galaxy Tab, a pair of 7-inch tablets, to the mix. To get video rolling, you'll need Android 2.2 (Froyo) at a bare minimum, though that only enables the rear-facing camera -- it's only with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) that properly-oriented face-to-face Skyping can occur. The app works over both WiFi and 3G and is available at the Android Market right now. Jump past the break for the full list of newly supported devices.
