Skype is coming to the iPad

Skype VP confirms that iPad app is coming with video chat features

Video of the new Skype for iPad app has leaked online, as reported by TUAW.

TUAW spoke to Skype VP of Consumer and Product Design Rick Osterloh about the new app. Osterloh expects the iPad Skype app to have similar success to the iPhone version which has said had a "userbase that doubled in just a month" following the launch.

Osterloh claims that some features of the iPhone version haven't made the cut, including: file sharing. However, every other feature shoudl be there - including video chat features that take advantage of the iPad's new video camera.

The iPad app is expected to launch tomorrow, 28 June, although this date wasn't confirmed.
