With OS2...
Aside from the "gimmes" (native email, contacts, calendar), I was able to load Kindle for Android (bye-bye Cloud Reader), and I was able to load Pandora for Android. Yes, they had to be side loaded, but they both work perfectly. Oh, and WordPress is nice to have as well. It's all good in my PB world.
how did you do a side load.. i wonder if this would work for skype?

Couple things to install on your laptop/PC first...detailed here:

How To: Sideload Android apps on PlayBook OS v2.0 for use with the Android App Player | CrackBerry.com

Pretty easy, really. If you can find Skype packaged in a .bar file, you'll probably have success.

Good luck!

The version of the Android player in the Playbook is 2.0.58, I know that in the case if Netflix which is 2.2 it won't flat out work with the Playbook, I am not sure what version of Android Skype was developed in, anything higher than 2.0 then you'll have wait.
