Hello can i use Skype video calling on the new GPD Win if i connect a webcam to the usb port?
Anyone gonna buy one? Kinda pricy huh?
I would have bought a PsVita buuuut they microsoft isnt letting sony use skype no longer
Yes you can use Skype, there's an embedded microphone but you'd need a USB webcam for video.
Costs more than the XD yes but pricy? Not really. It's a UMPC (below 10", includes a desktop OS and a keyboard) which disappeared as a device category, being replaced by Windows tablets. It's also the most powerful UMPC ever made and considering it has the entire windows games catalogue and can emulate nearly every other platform, it's a pretty good gaming device too. If you're comparing it to devices outside the category for instance windows tablets which lack a keyboard so can't be used for productivity, Android gaming devices which don't have the vast catalogue, or small laptops which lack the portability (the win fits in an inner jacket pocket like a smartphone) you're missing its key features.
As for sales, there's some numbers over in the indiegogo thread, it's in the region of 5000 units sold which is good given it's a niche device that hasn't begun shipping yet. I've put down the money for one.
That's one thing you gain with a PC, you have much greater control over every aspect. You can use almost any software ever written. Say Microsoft gives up on Skype? There are tens of alternatives that you could use.
