Time for FaceTime: Video chat done right?

Last week, while I was attending a convention out of town, I was able to ‘stay connected’ with my wife and kids via Google Video Chat. It was a great way to see the family and for them to see me. Our youngest, Katherine, was showing off by bouncing on our bed saying ‘Hi Daddy!’.

Looks like iPhone4 news is hitting the streets, and one of the stellar new features appears to be FaceTime, which provides video chat/calling.

As with most Apple products, it looks solid and well designed…and easy to use.

I’ll have to admire it from afar since my iPhone 3G probably doesn’t support it. Until then, Google Video Chat will suffice.
