    it allows you to use video chat/conf apps without having to turn the phone around and also lets you do the 2-way video chat where you can see to whom you are chatting and vice versa

    Cool...that's what I was wondering. I downloaded tango, and my wife installed it on her dx. She can call me and I can switch to video, but I can't cal her. When I click on her contact I only get options to invite her, but she already had it.

    Slinky, I know what a front facing camera does...but since we got screwed out of skype I didn't know what apps supported it.

    We were kiddin ya' :) Yahoo IM works. Another app does too - Tango. None of them work too well.

    "Screwed" out of Skype? Come man... it's delayed. There is a camera and software will take advantage of it eventually. At the moment, these are the options but you are equipped for the future...
