That's gotta be the stupidest thing I heard for both companies.
The only way that you could get use a PB to use facetime with an iPad is to use a 3rd party app - like Skype.
Which isn't released for PB yet.Torch it up!

My sony mini dv camcorder doesn't work with iMovies. When will Apple add support for that.
Also my windows software don't run on MacOS. When will apple run native windows app. About time,windows has been around for almost twenty years.
Apple needs to rethink their approach.....shheeesh what will people want next.

Shocking....a couple typical arrogant pri*k responses from the crackberry forum power users.
I travel a lot and use a Playbook that's linked up with my Torch through my companies exchange. I really like the product. My wife has a Macbook through work which she really likes. While traveling it would be cool to connect with my wife and kids via Playbook-Facetime video chat because those are the devices we have.
I would certainly pay for a product that allowed cross platform video chat.

Sorry: I don't understand your comments. Are your questions for real ? I hope my answers help you.
If it was a joke.... sorry... No bad intentions...... Joking too (I think)

I can not comment on it by a fact but based on the Apple, PC, Linux and BB limited knowledge that I have (as a user) and the software, apps and crossed applications I use, I think if would be easier to develop an app for iOS that works with reel-portal or playbook chat. Some smart guy will do (I can pt money on it)

Considering BBM now has voice chat, I am hoping that by BB10 the phones and the PB's will be able to video chat. Also, Skype is the most obvious choice for cross platform video chatting, in general, just wish RIM and Skype could make an agreement. That would bring so many new users....
As for Apple (and I've owned apple computers since my first computer) I really can't imagine them releasing any open-platform apps. It's all about chaining people to their OS.I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure....

Video Chat as it now exists on the Playbook is going to be rolled into BBM, first on the BB10 phones and later in the BB10 PlayBook update.
I've seen a tantalizing rumor that there will be a desktop client for BBM video, which would do a pretty good job of replacing Skype (PB video chat is already MUCH better than Skype)

Really? A year and a half old thread? And a busy troll dropping in to boot.There are trolls in BlackBerry clothing among us. Report and never reply to obvious troll posts, they will die without responses from you.
