Skype has been spotted in App World for PlayBook. Tashanna let us know that bbnews.pl somehow obtained this picture of App World running on a PlayBook. I was under the impression that App World for PlayBook was highly classified.
This is the first official looking picture I’ve seen of App World on the PlayBook. It looks good. All except for the price tag on Skype…$2.99?! First of all, did Skype forget that $2.99 is no longer the minimum paid price for apps? Secondly did Skype forget that Skype IS NOT A PAID APP?! Unless this version comes with premium features like Skype to non-Skype calls, I cannot figure out how this is justified.
Ronen posted an article with the picture below from CES back in January about the possibility of seeing Skype on the PlayBook. It has since been discovered that this picture is in fact a mockup. But notice the FREE price here.
I am hoping against hope that the $2.99 price is due to the fact that App World for PlayBook is still (somehow) top secret and in the developmental stages. Say it ain’t so!
What do you think?
Thanks again Tashanna for sending this in!
