Hey all, today is my first day using the galaxy tab! I tried to log into skype but it says that it cannot cnnect at this time. I just downloaded the popular one from the android market app.

I had just assumed skype was suopported!

Also if anyone could quucjky durect an android noob to where he can enable the swype keyboard that would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Skype - you must set up account on phone first. Also if you do not have front and rear facing cameras you only have call capability, no video calls. Swype - settings / language and keyboard. Tap swype.

Honeycomb is not yet supported by Skype despite the fact you do have a front facing camera. Skype only recently released a Gingerbread video-calling compatible version and even that only covers a handful of phones (officially) so far.

Skype video calling on Honeycomb is just a matter of time.....officially or unofficially.

Does audio calls work with the 10.1 just wondering or do we have to wait

Wife was attempting to do a video call last night and had no problem with the audio portion (just the video). I would assume, but cannot confirm, that a regular audio call would work fine.

Since I posted this I thought I'd clarify I had trouble signing in at first, but that was likely a network problem.

As others have said, voice calls work superbly, no video yet though!
