    The doubled RAM in the iPad 2 really seems to make a difference in terms of multitasking. On the iPad 1 Skype would be shut down as soon as a game was started, but the iPad 2 can handle that just fine. In a first test, I started Skype, then played N.O.V.A. 2 and still received incoming Skype calls.

    Very cool.

    Feedback on multitasking with Skype...

    Thinking about buying my wife an iPad 2 for our anniversary but I need to make sure that it can multi task two apps, primarily Skype or Facetime with Facebook games like Scrabble. She'll spend hours playing Scrabble with her mom while running Skype in the background so they heckle each other. If this is possible, it's a done deal but if it's going to require me to mod it out of the box I may have to look else where. Any feed back would be appreciated.

    Not sure about Facebook Scrabble. However, Skype works while running in the background.

    I just ran a test by Skype calling from iPad 1 to 2 and at the same time playing Monopoly over wifi between the two devices. Works great on the iPad 2, but iPad 1 is sluggish. Assuming Facebook Scrabble is a similar game, it will work.

    The new update for Skype on ipad1 supports multitasking also. It works in the background. Don't count us ipad1 owners out yet ;-)

    I was just re-reading the above post regarding Facebook games. Do these not rely on flash and thus won't work on the iPad?

    Not with native safari they won't work but with a browser like swifter or other browsers that support flash, FB games will work.
