I'm a nokia user, and mostly use it for my outdoor activities. And would probably need a blackberry for my work/school. Haven't bought one 'coz I was really waiting and expecting that BB10 would be really a big step forward. If BB really wanted to get back on top of the corporate world, why would they incorporate a feature that was so yesterday. When all the other companies are offering videocall on wifi. Maybe, it's just me to expect too much. Just disappointed... :(

Here we have a carrier problem. Using WiFI for talks damages carriers. The same problem is with Windows Phone 8 with SKYPE. The only difference is that SKYPE can call landlines if you buy credits.

this just reminded me, the playbook did have a front facing camera right, but you can never use it to make other video call aside to someone with another playbook. Hope they dont repeat that, and just allow skype or fring as well
