    I use Tango - never had any problems with it - it's fast and easy to use. Tango also works w/ iOS so I can still video chat with my "slower" friends with iPhones ;)

    There is no Google Talk application for the iPhone, and if there is one, I seriously doubt it has any video calling feature. For cross-platform, you can try Tango or Skype (not sure if either support ICS at this time - but you can check if you want).

    I use Google Talk from Galaxy Nexus to Galaxy Nexus or Xoom/Tab 10.1, and it works great between all 4 of my devices. A bit choppy on 3G, but when both are on Wi-Fi (different Wi-Fi connections, that is) it's pretty smooth and has a lot less voice/video artifacts. Try it!

    I have used Skype for video calling and works great. I have a friend who is in Vietnam right now and he was on wifi and I was only on a 3g connection and it worked great.

    I couldn't get gtalk to work for me. From my Galaxy Nexus (Verizon) to my friends Galaxy S1 (T-Mobile). I'll check out Tango though!

    I have a Skype account on my home computer. Are there charges for doing video calls on your phone?

    Just the standard data fees. If you're on an unlimited data plan, you're good to go, if not, you might want to watch how often you do video calls so you won't go over 2GB/4G.

    I'm on an unlimited plan, so the second part about going over 2GB/4GB might be erroneous.

    Skype in the market (not the Verizon Skype) works very well: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.skype.raider

    Free except for the data if you are not on unlimited. Video quality even over 3g is very good. It just works. Pretty cool to have video calling now with the g/f. We both have Galaxy Nexus phones. The Skype video calling should work on other phones though even iPhone.
