Skype for iPhone to Feature Video Calling

The Skype app for iOS will have the ability to make free video calls. This allows iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and gen-four iPod Touch users to share real-time video conferencing with users of Skype on Windows, Mac, and Linux, as well as the ASUS Videophone. Also, users of iPad or gen-three iPod Touch can receive video from other Skype users. Take not that this service works over both WiFi and 3G.

Of course, users of iPhone 3GS will not have the privilege of seeing the person at the other end of the video call line because of the handset’s lack of a front-facing camera, but at least they can shoot videos from the rear-facing one.

Because of this recent development from Skype, some tech observers now begin to wonder whether its video calling could hurt iPhone 4’s very own FaceTime usage.

Apart from the announcement, Skype representatives tell the public to wait for more news about the unveiling of the video call service next week.
