AT&T Launches Its Video Share Service

Article Comments  19

AT&T officially announced its video sharing service today at NXTcomm in Chicago. The service lets people send a live video feed from one cell phone to another during a voice call. The service requires that both participants have Video Share-capable phones and is available in 3 markets immediately (Atlanta, Dallas and San Antonio), with other areas served by AT&T's 3G network becoming available later in July. When the Video Share session is started, either caller can choose to send the feed, but it is a one-way stream. The service will be available for 35 cents per minute, or bundled into two packages: $4.99 per month for 25 minutes of use, or $9.99 per month for 60 minutes of use.

yea it may not be worth it, and probobly wont work correctly but at least it is a step in the right direction
Hopefully this will turn into a real video chat like they've had in Japan for a while now

Yawn....

Here's a novel idea for AT&T...... how about focusing on the 40-50% of the US that still lives without 3G before launching services that require 3G? Stop putting the cart before the horse.
Heck yes, Buffalo Ny, Pittsburgh Pa, L.A. Ca!!!

Plenty of places yet to be upgraded!!!

i live in st. Louis, we have 3g Razz
but seriously video share is a software upgrade to the billing and data sending systems. while building a 3g network involves union workers to climb a cell phone tower and, for lack of a better word "work".

Expensive.

Wow, that seems expensive.
Way to expensive for one way video call. Rolling Eyes
I agree, way expensive, $10, all you get is 60 minutes!!!

Ah heck, think of this as kind of a new beginning. Kind of like how cellular plans were in the 80s, and early 90s. It wasn't really until the late 90s that people actually started to get som...

Anyone tried it?

Has anyone from San Antonio, Dallas, or Atlanta actually tried it? I am interested to hear how well it actually works.

*Warning- Not PC*

(1) People complain that Cingular needs to finish rolling out 3G before adding "a novel feature"--Firstly, Cingular is continuing to roll out the network. What the hell do you expect them to do, not launch a new feature until you get your 3G coverage? The purpose of a business is to make money: many things to make people go "ohhh" = an opportunity for money to be made. Also, some places are more important than others, thus not a big priority to rush out the 3g; San Francisco or New York does not have the same importance as , Wyoming.

(2) Video Sharing makes no sense-- Most simply, don't get it if you don't want it. Also, it makes perfect sense. There are limits in all companies on the amount a video message can be. If you want to show som...

NUTTS! Rolling Eyes
agreed, but i'm sort of surprised that some mid-major cities still don't have it (i.e. Pittsburgh). we have 3G in cleveland, and that's all that matters to me really - but still, kinda surprising.

AT&T has to keep coming up with new innovative i...
