Default Skype, Version 3.0, Provides Video Conferencing for iPod Touch and iPhone

Two way video supported on the iPhone 4, 3GS and even iPod Touch 4th generation so that is a bonus. You can even use the video feature between desktop machines. I don't use Skype, but it's slick that you can now do video calling with a 3GS.&nbsp;</p>

Works great! Now we can video chat with all of our non-iPhone/non-Mac friends & family. Right about now, Apple should be releasing FaceTime for Windows, Android and WindowsPhone!

While it would be nice to have Facetime for Windows Phone, or Skype for that matter, since none currently have a front facing camera, the video aspect is less than appealing.

Wow. That's how out of touch I am with phones other than an iPhone. I assumed android and windows phones were already video chatting on skype and iPhone was just catching up. Well...would like FaceTime for windows at least!
