Update your Skype version. The new one has an option that enables video regardless of whether you have a supported device or not.

Do any current tablets on the market have Infrared?
Many have posted that the Toshiba Thrive outputs a full ½ A to the regular-sized USB port, enough to power an external, portable, USB-only-powered hard disk drive. I suspect it supports FAT32 at-minimum. What other filesystem might it support? I would also prefer support for NTFS3.
Based on my experiences with Honeycomb and devices which have full USB ports (Viewsonic gTablet), you will be able to use NTFS formatted drives.

Considering all that, it is not a good deal, especially since Newegg had it recently for $299 new with free shipping and no tax, or at least that what someone said several posts ago. Does anyone know if this thing has the right apps to use my HBO-Go account?
You will not be able to use HBO GO as of present as HBO GO currently only supports devices with IMEI numbers (Aka: Non-Wifi Only tablets and devices).

Didn't know it had this until a sales rep showed me. Haven't seen another tablet with this feature...
I will point out that EVERY single tablet on the market (including Froyo tablets) have this feature. Under Honeycomb, it can be switched from the status bar and the display settings menu. Under Froyo, it can be switched from the settings menu (and is usually the first thing I disable the second I flash my tablets).
