The long-awaited Skype for iPad app is now available

A Skype app has been available for the iPhone since early 2009, meaning iPad users have been able to use the app in pixel doubling mode since the iPad's release in April, 2010 - albeit without the ability to make video calls since the first iPad lacks a camera. But iPad users have long been calling for a native Skype app for the iPad and things only intensified following the release of the iPad 2 with its front and rear-facing cameras.

Last week Verizon Wireless announced that it had successfully placed its first voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) call over its 4G wireless data network using an LG Revolution 4G smartphone. This week at Mobile World Congress 2011, LG is demoing not only VoLTE calls on the device, but also video calls over LTE. And because the calls are made over the 4G Web, much like VoIP calls, users are able to use the Internet while they’re on the phone – something that Verizon hasn’t been able to offer previously, unlike its competitors.  Read More

Samsung Galaxy Tab

Apple has defined the market for tablet computers with its iPad and every new release since has inevitably drawn the question – is this an iPad killer? By the looks of things, Samsung's first tablet offering – the Galaxy Tab – could well be. The device trumps its rival on three key points. It's significantly smaller, lighter and more portable, it includes a camera and it works as a phone. We got our hands on the Galaxy Tab during the official launch at IFA today.  Read More
