    Has anyone found a way to do this yet? I am trying to do a video chat with someone who has an IPhone4. I did not find a thread talking about this.

    you can't video chat with iphones. apple has a closed system that doesn't even work with their ichat. They make you buy another application called facetime for .99cts that just came out 2 days ago.

    I'd be curious if you can video chat with a computer using google chat.

    So I guess we have to just wait for Video Skype. I am trying my best to like this tablet...as of now I can't think of anything I can do on the Xoom that I can't do on my Droid X.

    I'm 99% sure you can but I haven't tried it myself.

    If you can't video chat to an iphone4 you should blame tyrant apple for not permitting google talk to do it on their device. It's not Google's or Motorola's fault.

    I heard Tango is a good app to chat between the two devices but it doesn't show up in the Xoom's marketplace.

    Used to use Fring back before they had video chat but haven't come back to it since. Currently using Tango, but experience one MAJOR problem: have any users noted that Tango displays the video image upside down for the iPhone? And, if I turn my screen around to straighten the image for the iPhone 4, then they are upside down for me.
