    They can't transmit, not sure if they can receive, although I highly doubt it.

    at the moment i dont think there is an app that will let you video with iphone people plus the new iphone isnt out till later in the month anyways. maybe after someone like skype comes out with an app it might work who knows

    facetime is apparently open source. If someone wanted they could make an app for it.

    I really hope that there will be a mainstream video chat between iPhone and EVO users.

    There needs to be one unified program that works on all platforms with front facing cameras in order for video chat to really take off. (Oh, and Steve needs to make the iPhone's work over 4G kthnxbye)

    Haha, agreed and agreed (I was surprised when he didn't say iPhone 4 was 4G).

    But really, if they can't get all phones (with fron facing camera) to work together, it's pointless IMO. I don't know a single person with the Evo.

    Hell, I barely know anyone with an iPhone... come to think of it, only one person.

    Still, one is better than none.

    AT&T has no LTE 4G network done at the moment, that would be a huge waste of $, and Apple is not an early adapter.

    Skype is going to make both phones work togeather, and I'm sure the others will by the time the iPhone launches.

    So far i have been able to chat fring to skype on a computer with the video working. Skype's app doesn't seem to want to do video for me but I imagine that will change. The one thing I have noticed is that fring to fring calling has very little lag even on 3g but fring to skype has a significant delay even on wifi. I imagine its because of having to go through extra servers, but who knows. My wife is greeting the iphone4 the day it comes out so I hope they are compatible!

    The iPhone 4 will not be compatible to video chat to anything besides another iPhone 4. I watched the entire WWDC conference and for 2010, Videochatting on iPhone 4 will only be through Facetime and Wifi, and only from iPhone 4 to iPhone 4. Now, when will you be able to chat over 3G, who knows? When will you be able to chat with people who aren't using Facetime, who knows? Either/or could come at very different times (remember how long it took Apple to app MMS messaging and multi-tasking?). I tried calling by friend's 3GS and he said he could see and hear me but I couldn't see him... only hear him. Interestingly though, I was able to Fring video call my friend who has a Droid on Verizon even though it only has a rear facing camera as well... So maybe it has to do more with Android devices than others. Idk...

    And btw, Fring worked beautifully for me from Evo to Skype (PC) over 3G was almost lagless video-wise and 1 second delay for audio to my phone. It was very impressive and cool... I showed a bunch of people at work and they thought it was amazing and really cool. :D

    That sucks that face(plant) time works only with Itself but I think its not to far fetched to expect an android app that works with it. And that's just what I need, another app with yet another login and password. Ugh

    Well someone will have to come out with a universal software plan for these video phones now. They will be useless if one brand or type cant communicate with another. If the feature isn't universal then its just a gimmick to me then.

    If Qik makes an app for the new iPhone 4 they should be able to.. otherwise doubtful (for two-way)

    What's the point of having compatible platforms, that's dumb.
