You don’t need to worry if you can’t find your device here because you can still enable video calling if you are using Android 2.2 ( Froyo ) and above. Just go to “Skype settings” and select “enable video calling” once the app is launched.

If you can’t find the video calling settings then your device doesn’t meet the minimum requirements needed to make Skype video calls. They have also mentioned that if your device is running on Android 2.2 (Froyo), then video call quality may not be as good as on a certified Android device and only the back camera of the device will work .
