Last month when we brought you news of the new 1GHz myTouch, buried in the press release was a mention of a new Yahoo app with a feature we're all very excited about --video chat. Some of the substantial advantages this app has over other video chat applications (including those on other operating systems, ahem, iOS) are:

  • Not restricted to Wi-Fi
  • Large user base
  • Cross-platform capabilities; can be used between Android, Mac and PC

Unfortunately, along with the benefit of it not being restricted to Wi-Fi (its exclusion from the cross-platform list should have been another good hint,) comes the news everyone expected: the app will not be available for iOS users. Good thing we’re with Android, right? [via Reuters]
