Still no support for Tegra 2 (needs NEON instructions)
according to the FAQ (https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA11019/How-do-I-make-video-calls-with-Skype-for-Android") you still need the NEON instructions set, and Tegra 2 is not supported for video.

"* This specifically does not include some tablets that use the Tegra 2 chipset (e.g. Android tablets and Motorola Atrix do not support video calling)."

This is a bit of a bummer, i'm really hoping they get this sorted out soon. It works on my SGS, but i'd really prefer the tablet.

Friing (sp?) works great for video calls for me. I video chat to an iPhone 4 user no problem.

Yes but Fring is not Skype.
Most of the business world uses Skype.
Anyone got this working?

I read somewhere that they weren't going to do any deving for tablets until Ice Cream Sandwich comes out... It's up to us to make this happen it seems
