i think that if this is true and this tablet makes its way to america i think the american version would not have a webcam, because we dont have video calling in america. in france they do have video calling so it makes sense to put a webcam on their tablet. i mean if the american version did have a webcam it would suck cause most likely u would have to use it over wifi in order to make a video call and that would suck cause in alot of places u have to pay to use the wifi . cause our crappy 3G networks dont support video calling like the networks in europe...

AT&T has video calling, just no one uses it. But your comment about the crappy 3g GSM network coverage is correct, and the bit-rate is slower than in Europe. 7.2 vs 14.4mb makes a huge difference. When LTE takes off globally and VZW, AT&T, and T-Mobile all have the same 3g Network it will be easier to standardize that type of experience.

at&t does not have video calling they have video share .. which sucks because u cannot see the other person ...that to me is not true video calling i mean WTF u cant even see the other person... true video calling is when u see the person ur talking to and there able to see u.
