A leaked Verizon training guide for the Samsung Galaxy Tab has revealed that the tablet will lack Skype support at launch, together with the carrier’s V Cast and NFL Mobile apps. ┬áThe news, passed on by an Engadget tipster, comes as a disappointment, considering Verizon has blocked voice call functionality on their slate.

The scrap of hope is in Verizon’s wording, which suggests the three apps will be absent “at launch”; that implies a subsequent release, hopefully sooner rather than later. ┬áVerizon’s version of the Galaxy Tab will go on sale come November 11, priced at $599.99 with an optional contract-free data package.
