Thanks for the heads up.

I tried it out and the only real complaint is that on a N97 it only displays video in portrait mode. Open up the N97 and the video display does not rotate also the person you are calling sees you on your side.

I couldn't get it to work properly. Installed the new version ok, and tried ringing my wife on her laptop via her Skype.

Could get sound, but I couldn't see her and she couldn't see me ,so not sure how to correct that. I did notice that for Skype video calling, the connection has to be 3G (or over wifi )

It seems to work for me although it does take a few secs to get the video going. All my testing has been on wireless at home with a local friend.
Trying another friend who had a poor connection I couldn't get the video working. I'd guess they have some more work to do on this. Good start though.
