Skype could jump into voice calling on iPhone and iPadVoIP provider Skype, who experienced an outage recently (good thing they clarified it later on without leaving us users in the dark), has put up and removed promptly support documents that point towards voice calling on Apple’s iPhone 4, which is akin to FaceTime, alongside a native iPad app and perhaps even the holy grail of CDMA handsets- a Verizon iPhone. The updated Skype for iOS software will add video calling between iDevices and desktop Skype users, not to mention development work beginning on an iPad version. This help document was up only for a few hours (and enough to cause a buzz around the Internet) before Skype took down the help file. Video chats among iDevice users without subscribing to just Face Time rules? That is certainly something worth looking into, and if it helps Apple move more devices (assuming they need help doing so) without encroaching on the company’s bottom line, we don’t see why not.
