Cingular has announced it will launch a form of video calling this year. Confirming earlier statements by executives, the carrier announced it will let customers share video from the external camera, instead of face to face calling. Using new video-capable 3G phones, subscribers will be able to make a voice call, and then press a button to enable video sharing with other 3G subscribers. Cingular will demonstrate video share calling at CES using an upgraded CU500. They have not announced an exact date for the launch or if there is any additional cost for the service.

Hopefully something better than the LG CU500v

I think the CU500 is an oh right handset, but I'm WAITING for something much, much, much better. I have very, very high standards when it comes to technology, I haven't even been under contract for 15 months, waiting for something impressive to come from Cingular, I'm really hopeing the 2nd half of '07 delivers a handset that's actually impressive.
..problems with commitment, perhaps? I'm just playing but hey I've been without a contract for 4 months until just recently when I bought a BlackJack. BTW, NOT WORTH IT, however, the camera--for what it's worth--is godly. I'm returning it and waiting ...

do they think

the network can handle it?
the 3G network will and can handle it. BTW there are features available in POS that show the cost of Video sharing, tis going to be billed in a per min basis.
Absolutely. WCDMA was designed with exactly this kind of service in mind, and since they're using HSDPA 3.6 now, this is basically a non-issue.

We Wanted It, Now We're Getting It

Though we are late getting it, at least we are. Hopefully by the time Cingular has this upgrade they'll have their 3G network in my area.
And be named AT@T once again 🙂

her rich or eric

can we get a video of how video share will work??????
I'd be surprised if there was even one floating around Cingular (I haven't seen one), but there should be plenty more detail at CES.
We will def. do a video at CES, but it's pretty simple: you just press a button and it starts streaming live video from the camera to the other person (provided they have a Cingular 3G video phone.)
