Galaxy Tab 10.1 finally gets Skype video calling

The original Galaxy Tab has had video calling for quite a while now, but it is time for the big brother to join the party (as well as other Honeycomb tablets).

Download Skype now from the Android Market and get your video calling on! Please let us know how it works in the comments below.

    For those that downloaded the latest Skype on their Galaxy 10.1 and still can not do video calling, try these steps.

    I am writing it “for dummies” so everyone understands it:

     Start your Skype app.

    Once you see the blue Skype screen, tap on your bottom BLACK Galaxy toolbar (the one which you normally use for Home / Back)

    You need the NEW button that has 3 horizontal stripes on top of ea.ch other. That is called the MENU button.

    Once you tap on that, you will see all those options you could not find before. Go to Settings, enable video calling
