Skype for Android now optimized for use on tablets
The new UI for tablets is a combination between the regular Android UI and the traditional blue Skype look. And since Microsoft now owns Skype, it should be no surprise that you can now sign into the service using your Microsoft password. Also included with the update is improved audio, important when you're on a voice or video call, and the usual Raid housekeeping which kills bugs dead.

Um No sir.
That means a big developer such as skype is lazy and incompetent(you can tell by how they just have landscape mode for tablets :/) much like facebook and twitter for android.
How does the developers decision affect the quality of the tablet? they affect the quality of tablet applications.. see there is a difference :P

skype never bother making a separate skype app for tablets. i guess they figured they didnt need to since the phone app optimized to the tablets
