Video Chat App for the BlackBerry PlayBook Coming Tomorrow
      #40565 - 05/02/11 07:58 AM

Research In Motion today at the BlackBerry World announced the availability of the BlackBerry PlayBook Video Chat application. You can now make video calls over Wi-Fi network.

Check out our review of the BlackBerry PlayBook at:

Key features of the PlayBook Video Chat application include:

? One-Click Video and Voice over Wi-Fi Calls - with just one click users can make a call from their Video Chat contact list, log of recent calls or simply by entering the BBID email address of the person they want to call.

? Incoming Call Notifications - users will receive a notification pop-up when a new video call comes in, allowing them to accept the call as either a video or voice call, or decline the call. For those quiet moments - such as when while watching a movie or playing a game -users will also have the ability to simply set the "Do Not Disturb" option and the BlackBerry PlayBook will automatically ignore all incoming calls.

? Powerful In-Call Functions - by using the picture-in-picture function users can easily preview their own video image prior to placing the call in order to see what will be displayed on the other end. They can also easily switch cameras from front to rear so their friends can see what they are seeing, and for private moments users can mute/unmute audio or make or take calls using voice only.

? Friends List - BlackBerry PlayBook Video Chat comes complete with a Friends List for
maintaining your favorite contacts. A picture can easily be added to a contact to personalize the entry and a Call Log makes it simple to keep track of received and missed calls.

The BlackBerry PlayBook Video Chat application will be available on May 3 and will be
distributed to existing BlackBerry PlayBook customers through an over-the-air software update and will also be available on BlackBerry App World.

Video Chat works for PlayBook to PlayBook communication, RIM is considering adding support for BlackBerry smartphones.
