Well, if you’re not the kind of guy or gal to use Facetime, then you’ll be glad to know that a dedicated Skype app will be coming for your iPad. The software got leaked in a promo video that you can see below, detailing the features of the application.

Till now people (me included), were forced to use the iPhone Skype on the Apple slate, that very much decreased the communication area and usability of the software. Skype’s Rick Osterloh is claiming that the iPad app carries many of the iPhone app’s features, but desktop functions, such as file sharing will lack, sadly.

No info on the release date, but one thing’s for sure: we’ll finally be able to ring up people on other platforms, since Facetime was quite restrictive about that and only worked on the Apple hardware.
