iPhone 4′s retina display and Factime are probably the two best reasons to upgrade your device. Apple’s “one more thing” during WWDC 2010 turned out to be a demo for a Facetime video call between Steve Jobs and Jonathan Ive.
The success of facetime video calling largely depends on the number of people who can use the service. During the iPhone 4 announcement Steve Jobs said that Apple would be shipping “10′s of millions Facetime devices” this year. Apple is certainly moving forward towards that goal by making iPod touch 4th gen facetime compatible and we’ve also reported on rumors which suggest that second gen iPad with Facetime might be launched sooner than expected.
To begin with, iLife ’11, which was announced this summer (along with the disappearance of iDVD), might finally come out very very soon. Moreover, it’s rumored that Apple is getting ready to release Facetime for Mac and PC, with the Mac version being integrated into the iChat software.
If this rumor turns out to be true then it would really make Facetime more usable. Do you think Apple will release iChat with Facetime this year. Let us know what you think.
