Why are we unable to video chat between playbook and Phones? ..

Is this feature going to be incorporated? You can do it with facetime.....

 

Any thoughts surrounding this idea?

Skype & OoVoo are coming to BB10 and BB10 is coming to Playbook (some time this year), so then you can Skype-to-Skype Playbook-to-phone...

Oh, I  just got your question.  You want to know why it wasn't implemented natively, already.  You know the answer...it was an oversight.  Playbook as an extension of Blackberry phone was oversight after oversight, but as you know MANY things have been added.  It's just a matter of rushing to market, however, it's not like they stopped developing.  Even now we got an OS update while they are working on BB10.  I'm frustrated, but I can't be too upset when I see so much progress.

You can use the video chat between the PlayBook and the Z10, I tried it myself and it works very well
