Using skype or any other voice video communications system on the I pad. Since the speaker is small, what is a good make of blue tooth or wired(if it will work) headset to buy? Or what should I buy wired or blue tooth?
This is not for a lot of use, but when traveling or calling places to save a few cell minutes.

Actually skype works great. I've used it on various occasions on my iPad 1.0 I was also able to receive video with no problems at all.

If you are looking for a mic/headphone combo, I use the plantronics discovery its great. I use it for the my phone.

With my iPad I just use my regular headphone, ThinkSound Thunder, and they are awesome.

Cheers,

M

You gotta remember, Skype doesn't have a dedicated iPad App... yet. So yeah probably not a lot of people use it that way, plus the iPad mic is actually pretty good so most people won't find the need to gout and buy one.

I use Skype almost everyday but this will be my first iPad so I can't offer any advice or comments from experience.
