Skype For Android Gets Video Chat Support On (Very) Select Handsets

Our Next Batch Of Tickets To Our 6th Annual August Capital Party Are On Sale Now

When it comes to doin’ video stuff on Android, things can get a bit.. complicated — especially when that video is streamed. That’s why just about every video app to launch on Android is launching on but a handful of handsets at a time. Netflix initially launched on five. Hulu launched on six. This morning’s somewhat-limited-launch? Skype 2.0 for Android.

Though it’s not streaming video in the same sense as the rest, two-way video chattin’ is just as — if not way more — complex. The first batch of supported devices is made up of just four handsets: HTC Desire S, Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, Sony Ericsson Xperia pro and the Google Nexus S. Kind of a weird selection (No DROIDs? No Thunderbolts? No EVOs?)… but hey, gotta start somewhere, right?
