The thing about a tablet that sets it apart from a mobile smartphone is that it performs better when it comes to activities that are too complex and too bedraggling for a mobile phone, like typing a document. Also, the wide graphic displays are very helpful in streaming videos or watching movies. The thing that sets it apart from a desktop, on the other hand, is its mobility and connectivity. With tablets, you have the power to surf the web anywhere you are (as long as you have 3G or Wi-fi). This is why a leading tablet like the iPad is surely an outstanding tool for an app like Skype. Just last year, Apple started to sell iPad and iPhone units with Skype available as a native app. But with the rumored coming of the iPad 3, we think that Skype will work wonders on the next generation iPad. Here are the possibilities: Great video calling with an eight megapixel camera and great viewing through the Retina Display while sharing great moments with your friend merely sitting on the couch. Need I say more?
Skype has become very popular with its functionality as a voice-over-Internet-protocol service and software application. The said service allows the users to interact with friends and loved ones through voice, video and instant messaging through the Internet. Through this app, iPad and iPhone owners will be able to make calls to recipients with traditional telephone networks. Other Skype users may also make free calls to other Skype friends and non-Skype users by simply loading through a simple system based debit count. Skype is more popular for its features such as the file transfer and video conferencing. To date, Skype has almost 700 million registered users and is now owned by Microsoft. With the growing number of Skype users every day, we bet Apple will bake in Skype as a native app once they start to sell iPad 3.
Now a lot of tech savvies think that Skype for iPad 3 will not really make sense since it may also have an iMessaging feature. But the great thing about Skype is that you can chat or share video calls with people who have Skype apps on their iPhones, Android smartphones and tablets, personal computers, Mac laptops, iPads or TVs that are made ready for Skype. You can reach hundreds of platforms and millions of people anytime, anywhere through Skype. Also, if you spend a little bit on Skype Credit, you can even call landlines and mobile phones at very low prices. You can talk face to face or show your friend what you are seeing through iPad 3's front and rear cameras rumored at five to eight megapixels. You can also browse your recent calls and IMs on your Skype account through the iPad 3 history.
Aside from the fact that it works wonders over Wi-fi and 3G, you can also easily call anyone on your iPad or iPhone contacts! Another interesting feature that the iPad 3 has to offer Skype fanatics (if the rumors are true) is the sound quality that is similar to CDs (SILK). Can't wait to experience Skype on the iPad 3? Reports say that Apple will be starting to sell iPad 3 by the second or third week of March!
