Maemo Minute #5: Real Face-to-Facetime

I saw a Bell Canada iPhone 4 commercial on TV today. It was focused on the FaceTime application. At the end of the commercial, in small print, was the limitation that it works on Wi-Fi only.

Well, Maemo 5 and the N900 allow SIP video calling, GoogleTalk with Video, and Skype Video over Wi-Fi and 3G. I have had several Google Talk with Video calls over Windmobile's 3G network. And, just for the record, Maemo had this feature before Apple, and without the silly limitation.

Advantage: Maemo.
