The new version of Skype adds compatibility with a number of new handsets, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1; HTC Nexus One and EVO 3D; Sony Ericsson Xperia Live and Xperia neo V; LG Optimus Black, Optimus 3D, and Optimus 2x; Motorola Photon, Droid 3, Bionic, Xoom, and Atrix; and the Acer Iconia. In addition to the new devices, Skype 2.5 for Android supports video calls in portrait and landscape; it includes double-tap to zoom; groups recent calls by contact; improves support for Bluetooth headsets; adds the ability to delete and edit IM messages; and adds in-app advertising for non-premium users.

Atrix + Skype = Win

Works perfect. Tested it this morning, worked amazingly over the network without wifi. Skype > Tango.
