I'm having first version of ipad and a USB headphone. is it possible to use skype on ipad? I'm on Wi-Fi.

I was using Skype on my 3rd gen iPod for audio calls, so I wont think you'll have have any problems using it on a 1st gen iPad.

but no skype application for iPad in apple store. – Metal Gear Apr 4 '11 at 9:28
There isn't but you can install the iPod/iPhone version on your iPad. Download the app via iTunes, and then sync it to your iPad. – nuc Apr 4 '11 at 9:30
ok. but i think audio chat is not possible on ipad because no USB port available – Metal Gear Apr 4 '11 at 9:50
@jitendra-vyas You may use iPad's built-in microphone, or use the earbuds with microphone which came with your iPad. Alternatively, there is a USB adapter for the iPad, but I'm not sure if it's compatible with headsets. – nuc Apr 4 '11 at 9:56
The pinhole next to the headphone port is the iPad's microphone. – Jason Salaz Jan 13 '12 at 17:23

You cannot use USB Headset with an iOS device, however, you can use Skype on your iPad with the iPhone headset or with the integrated mic and speaker.

USB headsets do work with the Camera Connection Kit. – Jason Salaz Jan 13 '12 at 17:23
