Verizon's Galaxy Tab excludes Skype, NFL Mobile, and V Cast Video apps

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.
