People keeping track of these things will remember that when the Skype for Android version 2.0 was released to the public back in July, it brought with it Skype Video Calling to the Google-developed Android operating system, meaning that Skype for Android 2.0 users were able to make 1-to-1 video calls to their friends via WiFi or 3G. But that’s not the news; that’s just a quick reminder.

The news is that Skype for Android has been updated to version 2.1 and that this version enables video for even more Android-powered devices. You see, Skype for Android version 2.0 provided support for a handful of devices: HTC Desire S, Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, Sony Ericsson Xperia pro and the Google Nexus S.
