The killer feature of the new iPhone 4 that has Android fans jealous is Apple’s Facetime app that lets users have face-to-face conversations using the forward facing camera (mostly because we’ve always had multi-tasking). But fear not Droidheads, we’ve got a few options for video chatting of our own.
fring Free Calls, Video & Text
Fring is a complete IM client that supports every IM service you can think of. More importantly, it supports video chat using Skype, gChat and more. Although Fring turns out to be a lackluster IM client, it is great for placing video calls.
Qik is a service that has been around for a while. Originally you could only stream video to the web from your phone, however, the recent release let’s you place video calls, but only to other Qik users.
Skype mobile™ on Verizon
Ok, so Skype is behind the times and actually hasn’t release a mobile client that supports video calling for Android yet. But the word is that the soon to be released app is going to be THE app to use. Time will have to be the deciding factor with this one but look for the update in the upcoming months.
