Re: PB64Gb using skype & different language input
 
As far as I know (from doing a quick search via Google), Skype chooses not to support any Blackberry/Research in Motion products. During the search, it seems to be a high unlikelihood of it ever being supported.

There are a couple of options that I know of to use Skype on the Blackberry Playbook.

Option 1 - Browser-utilized
Apparently the site http://imo.im/ allows you to utilize skype on the playbook but there have been noted limitations within this option.

Option 2 - Android version
Sideload an Android Version (Top Blackberry Playbook Apps | Good e-Reader Android App Market and Store - Playbook App Market and Store) and try it there. I did test this on my blackberry playbook and it does work, however I do not have a skype account and was unable to test any of the features.

Best of luck,
--Phil

Skype works only on certain Verizon and 3 (UK) BBs.

If you were attempting to do it via Option 2, listed above it requires that you place the device into development mode and sideload it. Failing that try using Option 1. Again, Skype is not supported on any BlackBerry device except where listed above by Dubdub.

You will not get any video calling capability from sideloading the app on a PlayBook.

As is SirusXM Radio, probably a few others as well. Hopefully they complete these apps quickly.

I was able to get SiriusXM Radio to work by Sideloading it. I'm not sure if your looking for it or not, but if you need the .BAR file I can send it to you.

Cheers,

Thank Phil. Appreciate the offer. I use Nobex on my PB, don't have a SiriusXM account.

Grooveshark's html mobile site works very well with the PB too.
