Skype to bring video chat to the iPhone!

According to several rumors it appears that Skype will be making a major announcement about video calling from iPhone during CES ’11.

The first site to report on the rumor was Engadget which picked up on the fact that Skype will be participating in a CES panel discussion titled “Video Calling Gets Ready for Primetime.” Of course, panel discussions usually include participants from a number of companies, so that’s not enough to base a rumor on.

The kicker was an email received by the team that contained a link to a help document on Skype’s site. The title? “How do I make video calls with Skype for iPhone?” While a search of the Skype site didn’t reveal that document to your humble TUAW correspondent, we trust our sister site enough to believe that they had access to it.

Now if Skype can just keep prolonged service outages from happening..then we would be seriously excited about this news.
