After much anticiaption the long promised Sype app for the PS Vita is scheduled to arrive today, free of charge.
“The Skype app includes free Skype-to-Skype voice calling, as well as high-quality video calling that utilizes PS Vita’s front and rear cameras. The Skype app on PS Vita runs in “background mode” while you’re gaming or using other applications* — meaning you have the capability to “pause” a game, conduct a call and then return to your previous activity — so you never miss a call.”
“Plus, with a little Skype credit you can make low-cost calls to landlines and mobile directly from your PS Vita.”
Skype is available for both the 3G/Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi models. Click here for more details.
