It's Google to talk

For as long as we can remember phone operators have been obsessed with the idea of video calling, convincing themselves that it’s the next big thing. The main problem with this is that no-one ever wanted to a pay a load more money to be able to talk to a choppy video image of your friend, when text messaging and standard phone calling was so easy. However, the development of internet phone chat and smartphones has brought the technology forward to such a degree that we would even consider video calling someone. Maybe.

What we won’t be doing is using our monthly allowance though; much better to use Skype or even Google Talk, which as you can see below is rolling out video chat on Android, for free (as long as you have an internet connection and you haven’t gone over your monthly limit.), on the Nexus S devices, over the next few weeks. Check it out.
