|BY THE APPLE GIRLIf you are holding off on buying an iPad just yet, here’s some good news for you! Apple might be releasing the new version of the iPad with a front facing camera in the first quarter of 2011. Another rumor is that Apple is getting ready to ship Face Time version of iChat with which you could make Face Time calls from any Mac. FaceTime might be the next thing in vogue; GoogleChic, unless you buy an Apple device, you are going to be left behind with your wannabe “Face Time” flimsy video chat software on your Android!Front facing cameras on any Android device including your most favorite Samsung Galaxy Tab might only give you the hardware to do video calls. But what you really miss is the beautifully integrated Face time software that Apple has done so well.
Steve Jobs was critiqued when he claimed back in June that Apple would ship tens of millions of Face Time devices this calendar year.If FaceTime comes to all Apple devices, Steve Jobs might be keeping his word. A writer at Fortune has added up all the numbers and turns out Apple might have roughly 48 million Face Time devices in the market by the end of this year. Albeit, Face Time is currently allowed only on Wi-Fi, with 48 million Face Time devices, Apple is just unlocking the video telephony potential.
Girls, go get some make up on. Your next FaceTime call might be any minute now!
| BY THE GOOGLE CHICIf the hardware allows for a front facing camera, do you really think there’s no software to go with that? Of course not! Qik is a video chatting application that allows for you to video chat to your heart’s content. In addition, it’s a video sharing software app, you can upload videos to Qik and share them with your friends. Obviously, you can do this all over 3G 🙂Don’t be jealous AppleGirl because you can’t Facetime over 3G. There’s an alternative solution for you. You can Fring and video chat with me over 3G. However, as you will see in the demo below you may have some issues on your end 😉
