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
