New Yahoo Messenger app to support video calling on Android and iPhone
T-Mobile announced earlier this week that the new updated version of its myTouch smartphone will come with a front-facing camera, and a built-in app from Yahoo for video calling. Unlike Apple's Face Time, which for now works only when both sides of the conversation are in Wi-Fi coverage, Yahoo's system will work over a carrier's wireless connection.
While other services like Fring and Tango allow iPhone users to make video calls over both 3G and Wi-Fi, the Mountain View based company has much bigger footprints than either of those firms, and thus stands to have a much wider impact as video calling starts to spread and a front-facing camera becomes a standard feature on new phones.

That might be nice. Fring vs Skype vs Tango vs Yahoo. Someone has got to bring innovation.

I hope this comes to light because qik, fring and skype suck got this evo just for the front camera you know to try something different and so far no apps really take advantage of it. i dont get this its really old tech front facing cameras have been out forever over seas. oh well. p.s. qik sucks too. ;-)

Just tried Fring recently. That app is super buggy. The sound doesn't sound clear even with both phones on WiFi. Hope someone comes out with something stable soon.
