Yes, if you have an internet connection to it! You should be able to IM, Text and email to whomever is on your contact list! You can call and video message (live video) if you have an auxiliary webcam hooked up or have the tablet turned towards you so the frontal camera can catch your image? That's one of the reasons I really love these little tablet PC's is that I can do everything that a smartphone does and more! Best compromise between a cellphone and a PC! Hope this helps! Be Well!

Landscape shows up for some things (apps, movies through Google Play, etc.) But its not on the home screen or if you upload your own videos. HOWEVER apparently you can get an app that makes this possible. I just haven't done it yet. But it is possible to view in landscape for most things WITHOUT the app.

From the Nexus CNet review of this product it comes with a sim card slot. So if your cell company gives out sim cards for use with there cell network then you can use if like a cellphone.

Skype is an app that android supports for making calls. Skype to Skype is free but Skype to cell/landline costs. I do not know if the Nexus supports video chat thru Skype. If I find out I will edit my answser to include this.

Sort of. If you use Skype, Vonage or other VoIP app. Skype can be free, Vonage requires account. Also Google talk and several others. It works, but it won't replace a cell phone, because when people call you it won't ring.
