Since internet connected TVs are the next big thing, it was only a matter of time before you were able to make video calls using Skype software

Samsung and Skype announced two upcoming HDTV lines, Samsung LED 7000 & 8000 models, that will offer Skype software built in allowing you to place video and voice calls directly through your TV.

The video camera isn't built-in so you will need to attach a low-profile FreeTalk TV camera for Samsung created by In Store Solutions to complete the setup.

The TVs are shipping in Korea now and should arrive over seas sometime in the first half of the 2010.
