    Default Skype for Android now has video calling. Nexus S 4G not supported

    What the heck. New Skype 2.0+ has video for Nexus S, but not 4G. Why?

    I just installed it with high hopes also but no video in sight. Can't understand why they left out the Nexus 4G

    I figure it's gotta be a Sprint thing, right? They have been promoting Qik since the Evo first came out, although Skype owns Qik now. I hope it's just a matter of time though, Netflix expanded their available devices on their recent release after a couple of weeks.

    If you edited your build.prop to be crespo and not crespo4g it might work. You'd probably want to uninstall Skype, edit the build.prop, reboot, reinstall and try again. I dont use Skype but its an idea for those that do.

    Thanks, I'm technical but not that technical. I leave this stuff up the experts.

    Just found this on Engadget. "Though you might suspect otherwise given the Nexus S' inclusion, Skype has now confirmed that the Nexus S 4G isn't supported just yet -- it will apparently be brought into the fold with the next release."

    This does not bother me at all - gtalk has really good video talk anyway.

    Yes, you need to install a plug-in on the computer for Win7. Go to Google Chat - Chat with family and friends and it has a link. Work well, although it's not very feature driven.

    One thing I don't like is having to hold it landscape orientation. I didn't see a setting for portrait mode.
