Update for Fring bridges Android and iPhone owners with two-way video calling
If you've been watching a decent dose of television of late, you've probably encountered one of Apple's latest commercials for the iPhone 4 where they showcase video chat via FaceTime. However, Fring may soon become more of a popular client for handset owners thanks to the latest update for the Fring app for iOS 4 which bridges two-way video calls between the iPhone 4 (even 3GS) with either Android or S60 smartphones. Apple iPhone 4 owners can now rely on using the phone's front facing camera to chat with friends sporting Android or S60 devices – it'll work on either Wi-Fi or 3G connectivity. That's of course the beauty of Fring as it's able to connect more users with one another, plus there are additional enhancements found to make the experience somewhat more complete. It now offers Twitter stream integration to keep you posted on all the latest happenings, multi-tasking, and an updated address book which combines various contact lists from across applications. So if you're tired of having to contact only other iPhone 4 owners to show off video chat to people, now you can rely on Fring as a healthy alternative.

Careful iPhone users, I would think this would use heavy data being on that cap you guys are on. Well except the grandfathered in ones. :) Very cool idea though, I can now video chat with my brother on my Evo to his weak ass iPhone. :P jk

I chatted with my friend who has an Evo from my iPhone. It was cool but I'm just waiting for Androis to get FaceTime. It works much better.

Apple would never allow Android or anyone else to have FaceTime
