[freitasm] "3G video calls" failed... But "Social Video Chat" will win. Smartphones will change that.
Smartphones are very popular now and most of them include some Video ability. Do people think it'll take off where it's failed before?
My opinion is that it'll never fly, because it's just too clunky. The person wishing to do the Video calling has to hold the device away from themselves, keep it pointed at themselves and either using speakerphone or have a headset handy.
What do people think? Will the flood of smartphones with their high-speed data (and many different data plans) make Video calling more appealing, especially if you could just click a button and your facebook friends appeared on screen?
