iPhone Video Chatting: Face Time

With iOS 4 on the iPhone come video calling!  Steve Jobs announced it in an interesting way at WWDC today, as part of his famous “One More Thing” sequence.  He said, “In 2007, when we launched the iPhone, it was my privilege to make the first public call to one of my best friends.  I’d like to take the opportunity to do the same here.”

He started to call Jony Ive, and it was a video call!  

Steve: “I grew up watching star trek, DREAMING of video calling.”

Jony: “I grew up watching the same thing. It’s real now, isn’t it?”

The video chat software will be called Face Time, but it looks like it will be WiFi only.

“There is no set up. It works.. anywhere there is WiFi.”

Steve Jobs anticipates millions of Face Time equipped devices to be shipped in 2010.
