    Can somebody tell me if, when 2.2 finally arrives, I install Skype can I make video calls to Skype users on PCs via wifi?

    I'd like to use the SGS + skype to contact family in the UK when on holiday in the USA.

    thanks

    nope. Skype mobile doesn't support video yet. It has been 'hinted at' by Skype earlier in the year so you probably will be able to use it in the next few months (but only if Skype and Samsung get their act together)

    The only video call software that I've found that works cross platform (but only between mobile devices i.e. android to apple) is Fring. Only drawback is no Android to PC video and both participants need to install Fring for video to work.

    To be honest, it's only a stopgap waiting on Skype supporting video on my SGS.

    I've personally found it pretty stable across WIFI, with 3G it's a little more tempramental dropping calls etc.

    hope this helps
