    According to Skype's blog, it may be just a short time before the iPhone version of Skype will work over AT&T's 3G network. Skype also announced they are currently reviewing the iPad and it's specs. We should hear more in the months to come.

    Check out a video interview after the jump.

    I believe I read somewhere that Apple (actually, more AT&T) just approved Sling over 3G, and VOIP over 3G so Skype is sure to follow.

    Did I hear it right, that Skype to Skype calls will soon be available in the iTouch? Since the iPad will use Wi-Fi, does that mean that Skype to Skype calls could be made on it as well? I guess the proper App must be installed.
    Sorry if this sounds dumb. I'm fairly new to the Skype "thing".

    Hey no worries, that's what we are here for! Yes, skype should work with the iPod Touch. You will need to purchase headphones that include a built in mic like:

    The iPad will have a built in mic but should also work with the same type of setup.
