This morning, Skype posted a promotional video for an official iPad application.
The Skype for iPad looks amazing — it has “video calling, 3G and WiFi support,” and an “easy to navigate interface with animations and clean graphics.”
The video embedded below shows off some of the features of the upcoming Skype iPad app.
The features demonstrated in the video include the ability to see all Skype friends via the user interface.
Users can use the touch screen to scrolls through friends and tap into one of them to call directly via Skype’s video phone features.
Additionally, the app also allows text chatting and dial directly from the app’s interface.

The official iPad app is optimized to work on both the iPad 1 and iPad 2 where technology allows (obviously video cannot be sent from the first generation iPad but can be received).
Skype for iPad works on iOS 4.0 or above, on both Wi-Fi and 3G networks.
