Skype put up a new teaser site Wednesday that suggests a new mobile video sharing feature may be introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show next week. Under the heading “I wish I could share moments like these,” the site displays various videos presumably recorded on cell phones. Unfortunately, it appears as though this imminent mobile video solution from Skype may be a video sharing product, where users can record video clips and then share them with contacts. Mobile video sharing solutions are quite old at this point, and consumer interest has moved toward live mobile video chat such as Apple’s FaceTime and the Qik video chat application found on various Android devices. The specifics of Skype’s mobile video offering are still a mystery, however, so let’s hope the chat and VoIP giant has something a bit more modern in store for us at CES.
