    yeah, my 5800 would work much better. not all Android devises have front facing camera, but almost all nokia smartphones have from facing camera.

    since when Microsoft started supporting android

    Theoretically, this should also work on phones without front faced camera. Using the rear camera, you either can let the other person see you or just look in the display and see the other person.

    I think I saw attempts at XDA to make this work on other devices.

    Anyhow, this is a good update by Skype. The previous software version was really crappy.
