News: Skype Working On Video Calling for Mobile (iPhone to start)

Skype is not only known for being a forerunner in VoIP calls, but many professionals rely on it for it’s fantastic video chat capabilities.  Well, looks like they’re joining ooVoo, Yahoo Messenger, Fring, Tango, Qik, Facetime and all the others in the mobile device webcam chat arena!  This is big new!

For now, the only confirmation has been that they’re working on video calling for iPhone, but they do have an Android client as well, so we can only speculate that an Android one will be hot on the heels of the iPhone.  It helps that the iPhone 4 has a front-facing camera and is the “new hotness” in the Apple phone world.  As we see more phones with front-facing cameras, we should see a bigger push for these kind of mobile video chat apps.

Can’t wait to hear the official word from CES next month!
