Verizon's Galaxy Tab excludes Skype, NFL Mobile, and V Cast Video apps
A leaked employee training document from Verizon shows a summary of the Samsung Galaxy Tab's specs and features. What might surprise you is that the device will launch without Skype, NFL Mobile, and V Cast Video applications.

The lack of NFL Mobile is surprising given their partnership with the NFL, and the hype built around offering coverage over the tablet's larger screen. Skype is particularly disappointing, as many users hoped they could use the tablet for video conferencing, or in lieu of their cell phone. As for the V Cast Video apps, users probably won't shed any tears.

The exclusions are most likely temporary. If Skype isn't made available in the near future, users will surely find a way to utilize it on their Galaxy Tab. However, if these turn out to be permanent licensing-based decisions, they might be discouraging to potential buyers.

Do your homework phonearena. You can still download skypelite. They big difference is that skypemobile allows you to use it anywhere within the 3g network (VZW) and skypelite requires wifi. Ask ATT users..they are used to having to use wifi for video calls on the iphone. Most of them probably still dunno you can do video calls from any android phone as long as you have 3G!!!

Actually you can use skype and video calls over 3G on the iPhone without jailbreaking it because theres an app for that. So YOU do your homework before you bash AT&T and the iPhone.
