    SO yes, it doesn't have a front facing camera like Evo BUT the Fring app works perfectly and will let you do video calls with the Incredible. This is actually excellent news for me. A lot of the times I couldn't care less who sees me but I want to see them (daughter, wife, etc.). This way they can look at what I'm looking at while I see them :)

    Mirrors...

    I was thinking the exact same thing. Someone could probably make a hefty amount of money with some sort of 'Pivot-Out' case mirror in the accessory market. I don't really like bulky cases, but if the back was able to pivot and function as a mirror for the camera or screen, id be interested. Especially when traveling.

    Am I the only one that doesn't want my fiance seeing me drinking at the bar with my friends when I should be at home cleaning the toilets? :D

    Front facing camera = gimmick.

    lol @ both people looking at the backs of their phones for video calls. ONE party would have to have a front facing camera to make this worth it.

    Looks like Skype removed their support - that was fast. Now it keeps saying subscription failed for Skype - worked earlier today.

    How were you able to get it to work? I get a message in the box where the video feed should be saying there is no front facing camera??

    We have it working on the N900...its surprisingly smooth. I look at it as a way to help me, help my parents fix things, remotely, so now I can "see" what they are talking about. "Screen sharing" is kinda nice too.
