Video calling feature is now available on the latest version of Fring for Android
Just about every Android user will melt knowing that two-way video calling can be accomplished thanks to the Fring app for Android. There is a new version of the popular instant messaging client app available for download that will enable you to perform video calling through your Android powered handset. However, it should be noted that this sought out feature will require you to be running a handset with a “fast CPU” for it to work properly. Aside from working on speedy connections found with Wi-Fi, the feature will also run through connections that include 3G, GPRS, EDGE, and WiMAX – so you'll be able to do video calling from just about anywhere. If you haven't done it yet, we'd suggest downloading the update and experiencing this neat feature for yourself.

this is going to take a while to pick up because of the fact that not a lot of people have these types of handsets. I still see people carrying a flip open phone from thousands of years ago...Lets see if this catches on..

this will only be worthwhile on the evo for the time being, but as more front facing cameras come out this should be exciting.

This will be a fast growing trend by the end of the year and huge next year. 1ghz phones are popping up all over the place and we ALL know what 6 months means in this industry. 1ghz phones will be common (if not a thing of the past) front facing cameras will be popping up just like these fast phones are now and then finally the "4G" speeds will all but be nationwide to tie it all together. Next year we will catch up with Japan from about 10 years ago.

Yea, I was about to say the same thing how we are catching to Japan's video calling ability about 3-5 (maybe 10) years ago, haha. Well, US, is in fact, at least 10 times bigger (??)... so our technology is okay to be 10 years behind.. right!? xD

yea america is waaaaaaaay behind in phone technology over in madrid vodafone,orange ,moviestar ,yoigo have had video calling since 2005.. we never really use it. u never see any one use ''video llamada'' aka video calling i only used it maybe once or 2 times thats about it. over here we rather just text the other person or do a regular voice call because its faster and cheaper. video calls are more expensive than regular calls....
