I am buying an iPod iTouch from ebuystore, the place where I purchased my Nokia 5800 almost 2 years ago.
First of all, it has 2 cameras, one at the front and one at the back. The one on the back supports video recording in HD - pretty cool, huh! The one on the front is mostly for video calls and is only in a VGA resolution, something I really don't mind.
I was initially thinking of buying an iPhone 4G like my mom in law has in Hawaii with AT&T for the main purpose of making video calls to her via Yahoo! Messenger. So, whenever we're at the mall and I want to show her the kids in the playground, I can do so. But I wasn't 100% ready to say goodbye to my Nokia 5800 - it's been through a lot. My kids have tossed it around, poured water over it, and it has also toppled down from the stairs and is still working absolutely fine except for the scratches on the screen. Other than that, I have no complaints so I'm hesitant in changing it.
However, since I found out that with the iPhone iTouch 4th Generation which has WiFi, I can actually install Yahoo! Messenger in it and call my mom in law for just the fraction of the cost of an iPhone 4G! Besides, Skype doesn't have the technology yet to support video calls either on my phone on a Symbian OS and on the iPhone as well, so I guess I'm holding off of it for now. I'm crossing my fingers that I'm getting my hands on this really cool gadget this Saturday! Yipee!
