SKYPE on ARCHOS G9 101 - should it work ?

Hi all, My Son is going down-under for a few months. Instead of carrying his lap-top to keep in touch - via skype - he bought the Archos tablet.

Unfortunately, he can't seem to get a version of skype to work properly on it, although It works fine on his laptop.

1) Is there a specific version of skype for these tablets ? 2) If not, is there another program that he can use on the Archos, that will connect to his Skype family ? 3) If not, is there another program that can take the place of skype ?

thanks for reading

You can download and install Skype from the Android Marketplace most of the older android versions support Skype audio but not video so far
