AT&T Wants Platform-Agnostic Video Calling
Updated: fixed typo in headline, added URLs
AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega asked the wireless industry to agree on a single video calling standard that can be used by all devices and all network types so that customers can more easily use the service. As things stand today, there are plenty of video calling options, but the services are often only compatible with other devices running the same software and platform. De la Vega suggested that the industry use IP Multimedia Subsystems technology, such as the IR.94 video calling standard. When Apple introduced its FaceTme feature with the iPhone 4, it offered the technology to other companies, but so far none have taken up Apple's offer.
Time to Tango!
IMO Tango also works much better over 3g and it is very consistent. It also automatically searches your contacts and automatically lists all the other Tango users. I use it with my wife all the time.

apple make too many enemies by suing them.
why would any companies use their technology?
