Skype (slow log in)
Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere (a cursory search revealed nothing) but could anyone please confirm whether logging in to Skype on the nexus 10 takes significantly longer than on other devices? It takes upwards of a minute to be fully logged in. I have an android phone which takes nothing like this long. It doesn't seem to be caused by having multiple users on the device either, as the issue occurred prior to me setting up my girlfriend as an additional user.
In the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter that much - Skype still works once you're logged in - it is just that it seems odd for such a blisteringly fast device to have an issue like this..

Re: Skype (slow log in)
The current version of the Skype app is slower to log in for me to on both my Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus. I think sign in time is also quite dependent on the server side, for a couple of weeks over Christmas Skype was REALLY slow to connect (taking 2 or 3 minutes), then it was back to "normal". But connecting from the same place using the same version of Skype, my Nexus 10 doesn't feel any slower to connect than my Galaxy Nexus, but I haven't timed it.

Re: Skype (slow log in)
This is probably due to the authentication process being slightly more elaborate after they enabled Microsoft ID (formerly 'Live ID/Passport/Hotmail') and Facebook Connect login capabilities to the Android client. Microsoft is killing off the Windows Live Messenger medium, servers and client, come March - Skype is going to take over all of the accounts and you can merge your Skype username with your Microsoft ID. Longer login times have been appearing on the Windows and Linux clients as well (for me) ever since the newer version that allows you to login using the newer mediums. Yes, it's Skype - not the Nexus, not the Android OS.
