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.

Ok panic over. Rooted the phone,  located and removed leftover data in cache folder in the root directory. Deleted bad app reference with Titanium and all is good (apart from still no video out for Optimus black Smiley
