video chat with...

Its fine that the video chat only works playbook to playbook (i realize that cross-platform integration is hard) but it would be nice if video chat could work playbook to desktop or laptop that is logged into some portal (via bb ID) on blackberry.com. That way when I travel, I can still video chat with my wife and RIM doesn't need to worry about integrating with competitors.

or does that exist and i just cant find it?

Re: video chat with...

It's just PlayBook to PlayBook for now.

This years BlackBerry releases will not have front-facing cameras, so I seriously doubt we'll see it on the phones until next year...

As for some desktop implementation, we can only hope. I wouldn't hold my breath, though.
