Skype Brings Video Chat, Instant Messaging, SMS To iPad

Skype just released an iPad version of its mobile app today, bringing a new interface optimised for large screens, as well as everything you’ve come to expect from Skype: two-way video calling, instant messaging and SMS texting.Of course, even if you have a camera-less first generation iPad, you can still take advantage of all the other features, including receiving video from your chat partner. And, as always, if you have Skype credit, you can call people’s landline phones as well. Best of all, Skype for iPad works across both 3G and Wi-Fi, and lets you talk to Skype users on any platform — Windows, Mac, iPhone and more. Check out the video above to see it in action, or head straight to the App Store to check it out. [Skype Big Blog]
