Fring software has been updated to Fring 2.1 for Android allowing you to make video calls to your Skype contacts on their computers or other devices with front facing cameras like HTC EVO 4G. It is being reported that that app works well but the video quality fails to impress as compared to a significantly-compressed YouTube video. However, we are sure that Fring would add ‘OOH-LA-LA’ tag with better quality in upcoming releases for Android phones.
Watch the video below where the reporter made a test call to the wife and kid for video chat. The video clearly shows that it works best in landscape mode and you get the other person’s video on the left and a video of yourself on the right.
Sprint earlier demonstrated the HTC EVO 4G with this functionality at their launch event, with Qik which comes with a premium of $4.99 per month but disabled the video conferencing feature in Qik software for the EVO 4G units that were given out at Google I/O event. Rumorologists suggests that Apple’s new iPhone 4/HD will be sporting front-facing cameras and Video iChat but may not be work as good as on EVO 4G. But why? The reason is simple! EVO 4G is having much bigger screen and video chatting on bigger screen is always great. Isn’t? It seems that the fight between HTC EVO 4G and iPhone 4G has begin. Waiting to see the punch from Steve Jobs after he unveils iPhone 4G at WWDC which begins on June 7th!
