NOKIA N9 and Skype
From anyone that has access to a NOKIA N9: does it include Skype application?
Moved to The Lounge, as it is no Qt tropic and also no programming topic, Gerolf
Yep, it has :-)
Are we talking about an application or just integration with the OS? Also, if there is an application, is it capable of video calls using the front video camera? :-)
I did not try that out, I just looked, whether skype is on the phone ;-)
There seems to be an application and an OS integration (it connects to the address book if I interpret it correctly).
Gerolf and Volker, thank you both for your answers. :-)
I am mainly interested in the application.
If someone who has an N9 could clarify if the application uses the front camera, please do so.
I have no peer to test with right at the moment :-)
If you happen do have a Skype account, PM me, I then can test.
I tested skype on my N9:
it looks a bit strange to me, I did not find my contacts as list and there was no video phone, just normal skype talk. And I could not start a skype talk via skype, perhaps that must be done via contacts?
I found a german page with info about "N9 and skype":https://support.skype.com/de/faq/FA11050/Welche-Funktionen-unterstutzt-Skype-auf-meinem-Nokia-N9;jsessionid=69D66C87C77AB959986F4766506FD018
The page, Gerolf linked to, is available in "English":https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA11050/ too.
