    Those app which are in built or pre installed,you can not delete or uninstall those app.only those app can be uninstalled which are not pre installed.
    You can not uninstall skype if it is pre installed.If you badly want to delete then go to service centre there tell what you want.They might help you.But I suggest you not to uninstall Skype.

    All the preinstalled the applications can be uninstalled only by rooting the mobile. Without rooting the preinstalled apps cannot be deleted.
    Check for the correct rooting instructions for your mobile and try to root it. If you root it, you would get the superuser power and you are free to do anything on your mobile.
    Once you root it, all you data and apps installed will be deleted. Learn the pros and cons before rooting.

    No dear...

    Its a copyright and inbuilt software which you can't uninstall because it is already given by Samsung to use this app.
    No application which is pre-installed by the company, can't not un-install or remove.
    If you tried to uninstall, then it will affects your Tab.
