    I've just got myself 1 of these tablets and installed Skype but cant get the camera to work.
    Any ideas?

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Won't work until skype makes the a500 a compatible device for skype.

    You can use the talk app on the tablet (its google talk) this ended up not working right for me so now I use Clearsea (compatible with android, ipod/phones, and pc's)

    Thanks for your answer but I thought with the camera on the front it would work no problem.
    Am slightly disappointed :(

    Unfortunately no. On my samsung galaxy tab (7" version) skype will only work with the back camera. Like that's so useful for video chat. So pointless

    Friend with an iPad had the same problem with only a camera on the back. I sugested that he could Skype/video conference either using a mirror or putting a sock (with a few eyes sown on) on his spare hand and using it as a glove puppet in front of the camera.

    Shame that Skype does not work. I guess I won't bother trying it then.

    Tango is a GREAT app - also works across the Andorid/Ios platform line.
    Easy to use .....
