    Anyone try doing the upgrade phone call to skype bit? I tried it with my brother last night and skype just stalled. We tried a few times but without success (both needing forced reboots).

    When then did a regular Skype video call. 2 things I noticed:

    1. The other person video feed appears fine. However, the small box with my own image is not mirrored, which is a little disorienting when trying to make sure my face is visible. Hard to explain, but if you use skype on a laptop/PC and then on your phone you'll noticed what I mean by mirrored view.

    2. Not only is the small box with my own image not mirrored, but when you put the phone in landscape, the image goes upside down.

    Ugh. I know it's just a dev preview but anything wrong with Skype just gets me going. I have such high aspirations for what MS can do since they own skype, but everything about it seems second rate. I mean, there's a reason many tech and entertainment bloogers / vloggers use google hangouts over skype. :(
