Does the Kindle Paperwhite have a camera so that you can use Skype with it?

Virginia, the Paperwhite would be almost useless for Skype. It has no camera, but even if it did, it has no audio, and even if it did, its screen is not suitable for video.

However, if the screen is as awesome as it looks, it will be the best device yet made for the specific task of reading.

Almost useless for Skype? I think maybe you meant /completely/ useless for Skype. No audio, no video, it can't be used for Skype text chat.

I'm curious as to how it would be useful enough to not be completely useless (for Skype...I'm sure reading, its intended purpose, is delightful).

All I want Skype for is text chat. If I can post on here with my Kindle than I can surely send a Skype message.

You can't install a Skype app on a Paperwhite because it's not an android device.
