    Nope, not yet. Gtalk is text only at the moment on the iPhone and I believe the only way to do it on ANY mobile device is with a Android 3.0 tablet.

    AN alternative to the skype 5 headache: vtok !



    I just found "" vtok "" in apples app store. VIDEO, CALLING, over wifi and 3G works fantastic !!!

    iPhone, iPad Mac, PC, they all connect just fine !!!

    All you need is a google mail address.

    Hallelujah

    Vtok is a great video app. Skype doesn't support a native iPad app and Fring has no PC/Mac support. Vtok works on all my devices. Great app.

    Skype's iPad app is in the works, but for now, the iPhone app works fine on iPad.

    Skype is more cross platform and has desktop versions as well. So when we can't use FaceTime, we'll stick to skype.

    vtok is the only one I know of, but it's great. Works awesome over wifi and very well on 3G. Works for all iDevices with a front camera. I got it free (not sure if that was a promo or not).

    I wish Apple would make FaceTime an open standard as they said they would (wow, a year ago now). But for when facetime is not an option I like vtok a lot and skype is great on the iPhone.

    Well its been quite a while and Skype still hasn't done a native iPad app. And lately the video on my iPhone-to-Mac seems a bit choppy. Happens on wifi and 3G.

    Phones that are running android 2.3.4 can do it, and it's also possible with a phone that has 2.3.3 if rooted.

    skype really is dragging it's feet on this one. iPad 2 has been out for about 4 months now. That's a third of the way to the (probable) next release cycle. Plus, they had to have known ahead of time that the iPad was going to get a front camera. Sure it was all speculation but after seeing the iPhone 4 and then the new iPod touch.... come on, we all knew it was coming. I'm surprised they didn't have an iPad app ready to go right off the bat.

    It took them a year to support push notifications. This is no surprise.
