SKYPE on ARCHOS G9 101 - should it work ?

  Furkin 11:34 23 Jan 2012

Hi all, My Son is going down-under for a few months. Instead of carrying his lap-top to keep in touch - via skype - he bought the Archos tablet.

Unfortunately, he can't seem to get a version of skype to work properly on it, although It works fine on his laptop.

1) Is there a specific version of skype for these tablets ? 2) If not, is there another program that he can use on the Archos, that will connect to his Skype family ? 3) If not, is there another program that can take the place of skype ?

thanks for reading

Don't know a lot about the Archos G9-101 but you will need SKYPE for Android - see here enter link description here

Click on the Get Skype Tab and choose Android.

You can download and install Skype from the Android Marketplace most of the older android versions support Skype audio but not video so far
