Tony, my school friend asked me that he want s to buy tablet and he only use internet for web browsing & Skype for voice and text chat with friends. I explained well to him but I think I should post about this on website for guiding other users too
First of all tablet is not just for surfing and skype, tablets are offering much more then skype for these days. But here concern is skype so I will go straight to skype only.
Skype is simple application which allows voice over internet. Like all other application it have some requirement to run on various platforms. Specially you need to understand better about OS supported by Skype.
For today, Skype have offered many versions for various operating systems platforms. Since here we are looking for tablets only then we will only discuss tablet supported OS only.
1. Android Tablets - Yes Skype have application for Android devices. Click here to get Skype on Android
. It Requires Android 2.1 or up version.
2. Windows Tablets - Yes have application for Windows phones as well. Click here to get Skype for windows phones
It requires Windows phone 7.5 or up version.
3. Ipad - Yes Skype have application for ipad as well. Click here to get Skype on ipad
. It requires iOS 4.3 or up version.
Most IMP :: Skype do not have application for blackberry playbook tablet.
Other important thing need to be kept in mind is tablet must have high speed internet connectivity over wifi or 3G or 4G bandwidth, else you will get breaking voice.
Better front camera will give more enjoyable experience for video chat.
Again original question is which tablet is best for me? It is totally up to you now. Choose better tablet of your choice which support all above requirements and fits in your budget. For me I personally love ipad and I used skype with ipad as well it works perfectly for me. Also I know my other friends who are using skype with android tablets as well. My testing of skype on android was also pleasant.
Kindly share your comments on experience of skype on tablets.
(Also do not forget to mention device you used.)
