    Ive used Fring and Qik already. Tango required a phone number so it wouldnt work for me. I havent yet tried video through google talk to see if it works.

    Tango isn't bad. Cross platform too.

    No video chat capability via Skype yet (if ever, now since it is owned by Microsoft).

    Google Voice/Video chat is a good option and most Android phones should have it with GB update.

    Sucks about Skype though since a lot of my international family use that primarily.

    Definitely GTalk - I use it now from my GT10.1, HTC Evo 4G and desktop computer. Video and audio quality far surpasses that of Skype in my opinion. Plus now I have full video chat access to same contacts list on all devices. Love it.

    I have a rooted HTC Evo 4G running CM7.0.3 and just needed to flash an older version of GApps. Supposedly the next stable release of CM (7.1 I believe) will have a compatable version of GApps included. In either case, if you are rooted it can be down in flash (pun intended).

    I decided to gift a tab 10.1 to my dad since it fits his needs.
    similarly, i gifted an ipad2 to my in-laws because that's what they need.

    we use iphones.
    now, what are my options for video calls between the 3 households?
    obviously, facetime is the right answer for video between my in-laws and us but what about the tablet?
    I tried fring,skype and tango and was not successful with video.

    I do not mind paying for an app at either end (on iphone or the tab).

    thanks all!

    Hi Gordita,

    May I ask what type of video issues you are experiencing on Tango with your Galaxy tab 10.1?

    Thanks!

    How did you get qik up and running? Market says it is not available on my carrier, which is odd since it is the wifi version. Did you sideload it? If so, from where?

    Maybe all's not lost. I guess we'll find out in about a day if Facebook comes to the rescue for something browser-based using Skype.

    One of the reasons I jumped the gun on getting a tablet now instead of waiting for the likes of Amazon or even Windows 8 is because of the wife's trip overseas soon. I guess I should have checked more carefully about Skype.

    Google chat works great for video. Problem is if you're trying to vid chat to a phone, it must be ver 2.3.4.

    Wife has a tmo sensation and we're waiting on that update.

    So I guess that didn't work out with Facebook. A "your browser is not supported" message when going there from a mobile device.

    Tango and Fring are out for me, and I guess Google Talk as well, since I need international Android to PC video chat.

    Now what? I have a google+ invite, though I can't get in and I'm not sure if it allows for what I need (free).
