Envisager from the EU PlayStation Forums has just confirmed that Skype will release on PS Vita tomorrow, 25th of April, complete with video calling! Envisager detailed the following statement from Skype:

“Our users appreciate being able to access Skype features wherever and whenever they choose,” said Manrique Brenes, senior director of emerging opportunities at Skype. “With the launch of Skype for PS Vita, we are taking another step towards our ultimate goal of making Skype video calling available on every platform, all over the world, and meeting the demands of existing PlayStation users to offer video on a gaming console.”



Skype on PS Vita system runs in “background mode” for users while gaming or using other applications and users have the capability to “pause” a game, conduct a call and then return to their previous activity.  Additionally, PS Vita system features both front and rear facing cameras, which allows users to switch back and forth between the two during a Skype call. This is a great benefit of never missing a call even when playing a game or using another app.
