Bluetooth still doesn't work - So, if you hear Skype ringing (in your ear - via Bluetooth) and you answer the call, the audio goes to the iPad built in mic and speaker.

I wonder - with over 30mm people connected to Skype, you would think the developers would actually make one Skype call using a Bluetooth headset before publishing the update as something we could actually use!!!!!

I have checked into this extensively - it's an iOS problem. Whistle, Fring, Truphone.. all confirmed that Bluetooth is enabled in their code - none of them work either. I guess Apple only wants us to pay for an iPad, iPhone, but gives us Bluetooth functionality for music only. They say "piss off" to business users.
