it's always the same story with Skype! When I had Nokia 770, I
couldn't use Skype, they didn't a Nokia 770 version, because it hasn't
enough processing power to make voice calls, but I was able to do
voice calls with Gizmo.

Now the same situation: N800/N810 haven't enough processing power to
do video calls with Skype, while you can do them with integrated Gtalk
client or with Gizmo.

Skype: closed source, slow, consumes a lot of processing power, use
your bandwith.... I really don't like it!
