Make 3G Videocalls from a Normal PC

Vodafone Portugal has launched a service, designed for computer users which will enable any Vodafone customer (whether or not they have a 3G phone) to associate their mobile phone number with their PC and to receive or make videocalls from their computer. As a result, Vodafone is able to offer 3G videocalling to all its 4 million plus customers.

The Vodafone Web Videocall service costs the same price as a videocall made from a 3G phone and it is possible to use the same Vodafone mobile number. The application enables users to manage their contacts (with photos and special ringtones and import of contacts from Outlook 2000), to access their call log easily and immediately, and to control picture quality and sound during the videocall.

Vodafone Web Videocall is an application developed to Vodafone Portugal's specifications by Nortel (in partnerships with Dilithium Networks).


..Now when are Vodafone going to launch this globally?

I have emailed Vodafone about this & they replied "Currently there are no plans to introduce this service in New Zealand".
