    GTalk is a preloaded app on Android, I have actually never seen it on the market now that I think about it.

    If you dont have it that is quite strange, but I can pull the .apk from my Droid 3 and send it to you if you want just PM me.

    sorry, i found the preloaded one, i can't think why i was looking right past it all day.

    i was sure gtalk was a market app, isn't there an update to allow video chat in it?

    Yeah your right, GTalk 1.3 on Android 2.3.4 is suppose to have video chat, but it looks like we don't get that feature. Thats kinda sad, I was looking forward to that and really dont want to use skype or anything else. If and when the phone gets rooted we could run these steps:
    Download Google Talk 1.3 APK With Video Chat from Android 2.3.4 - xda-developers
    but until then we can only wish.

    Found this on the Motorola frequently asked questions area:

    Google Talk video chat
    DROID 3 by Motorola will not support Google Talk videochat at the time of market launch. We are excited about the potential of videochat to enrich the Motorola smartphone experience, and we are working actively with Google and Verizon Wireless to enable this feature as soon as possible.

    Here's a link to the page:

    My money is on the fact that Verizon doesn't want the bandwidth eaten up by all of the video chats that will take place.
