    Currently no, not a real 2-way chat. Fring had a Skype port but Skype shut them down and Skype did an exclusive with Verizon, which is hilarious since Verizon doesnt seem to believe in phones with front mounted cameras.

    Im really hoping that Google takes this on themselves as yet another way to compete with Skype (since they brought out the new voice service, HD chat, etc). It only makes sense to actually make the gchat on the phone worthwhile by adding the video feature.

    Yes its called imovicha. Works good. I use it all the time. Not many know about it but I've been using it for 3 months without a hitch.

    You need to make sure you download imovicha for evo... The original app doesn't support the front facing camera.

    I couldn't get Movicha to work. It always says the people on my buddy list are offline when they're not.

    i use Movicha4Evo now. It works just as good/bad as Fring did for me. Poor/pixelated capture and random audio loops. When it works good it's awesome, when it's bad it's really bad. But Fring w/Skype was exactly the same for me...
