Skype for Android’s latest release apparently supports only a bunch of other handsets – the HTC Desire S, Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, Sony Ericsson Xperia pro and the Google Nexus S. Trust the ever enterprising spirit of mankind to hack said version to include video call support on all the other non-listed Android-powered smartphones. The particular version that we’re referring to was released with the Samsung Galaxy S2 in mind, although the performance will not be limited to just that particular smartphone. While it remains too early to perform exhaustive testing for other models, the APK (installation file for Android phones) has been touted to work on the HTC EVO 4G, alongside the HTC Thunderbolt with some measure of success.
Needless to say, only if your Android-powered smartphone has a front facing camera should you bother yourself with this version of Skype, and make sure that there is a decent processor hiding underneath the hood as well.
