The Android versus iPhone fanboy battle is almost as bad as the Mac versus PC war. There are few things in the world for an Android lover worse than not having a cool app or feature that iOS devices get. One of those features that Android lovers have been lacking is video calls through Skype. The iPhone has been able to make Skype video calls for a while.

Today, Skype announced that it was finally giving Android fans the ability to make video calls using the latest version of the Skype app. The app is on the Android Market right now. In addition to the video calls, the user can still make and receive calls from everywhere. That now includes video calls to and from iPhone, TV and computer users. The video mode supports both front-facing and rear-facing cameras as well.

The app also allows the user to send SMS messages to anyone in the world at Skype rates. This is cool and the only downside is the video calling only supports a few phones right now. The supported devices include the HTC Desire S, Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, Sony Ericsson Xperia pro and the Google Nexus S. You can grab the latest version of the Skype app at the Android Market now.
