    Default Skype to come to the iPad in the near future

    Good news for all iPad owners who use Skype on a regular basis. The company has developed a new Skype version for the iPad, which means that iPad users will soon be able to enjoy the Skype experience on their tablets.Skype was a huge success when it was launched for the iPhone. As soon as the app became available, the user base doubled in just a month’s time, Skype Vice-president of Consumer and Product Design Rick Osterloh stated. Judging by this statement, it seems that the company hopes the Skype version for the iPad will be just as successful.

    What is expected from the Skype’s iPad version

    Skype will allow users to chat with their friends, make audio and video calls, etc. via their iPad tablet.However, there is a bad news in all this: the file sharing features have not been integrated in the app. It appears that Skype has developed the app for iPad tablets simply because of their cameras. This means that the company is expecting iPad owners to use the app mainly for chat and video calls.Many may think that Skype is trying to compete against Apple’s FaceTime, but it appears that is not the case. Moreover, Apple does not seem to view Skype as a rival for its FaceTime feature since the Cupertino-based company invited Skype on stage when it revealed iOS 4.Apple has recently offered deeper Twitter integration in its iOS 5, but the company is not planning to grant the same favor to Skype as well, Rick Osterloh informed.
    Skype officials have not offered any information about the release date of the new Skype version for the iPad, but given the success of the app, this should happen very soon.
    A video demo featuring the Skype for the iPad is available online thanks to a very attentive YouTube user. The tutorial is a leak which Skype has tried to prevent from getting to the public, but without success.



    Skype is also available on Android smartphones, but the video capability has been disabled. However, HTC’s Thunderbolt, an Android-based smartphone, could soon be compatible with Skype’s video app thanks to over-the-air updates.

    All in all, Skype is already available on the iPhone, on the iPod Touch and on Android phones. Soon, it will come to the iPad too. Could it be that this online communication network is planning to take over mobile devices?
