After launching video calling for a mere four devices and leaving everyone wondering when a majority of the Android-toting masses would get the functionality, Skype has finally updated their application to add new devices. It’s a significant list, too, with devices such as the Galaxy S and SII. both the EVO 4G and EVO 3D, the DROID Charge, the Thunderbolt and more making appearances in this update. This brings the total to 21 devices. You’ll need to be on Gingerbread, but (mostly) all of these devices have either been updated to Gingerbread or were launched with it (except for the Thunderbolt which is still on 2.2). Apparently, Skype can only access the back camera on 2.2 and 2.1, something many other applications don’t seem to have a problem with. Whatevs, download’s in the Android market and the full list is below. [Market]
