First Look: iPhone 4 and FaceTime

1:22 /

The new video chat feature, called FaceTime, works using the iPhone 4's back- and front-facing cameras. It will remain a Wi-Fi-only feature until carriers can catch up with the bandwidth needed.

[ Background music ] >> Brian Tong: Brian Tong here with CNET.com and we're giving you guys a first look at Face Time, Apple's new technology using the front facing camera and real time video calls over Wi-Fi so we have this phone here. This is the new iPhone 4, sleek and sexy and we're gonna just set this call up, so we're calling Suprea [assumed spelling] right now. Now what I can do here is initiate Face Time by pressing this camera icon here and if we'll give it a sec and here's what we see right now. You can see this is using this Jim right there the camera man, say hi. >> Jim: Hello. >> Brian: There he is alright and here's Suprea, Suprea how you doing? >> Good how are you [inaudible]? >> Brian: I'm doing great. You're looking vivid, you're looking good. Who's your dresser? >> Thank you. [Inaudible] >> Brian: Oh she said that Steve dressed her. No here's a great thing also if you want to see what I see if I'm looking forward I'm gonna hit this little icon and its going to switch the camera and so now she can she essentially see's this little current but I'm gonna switch it back and this is just the first time we've ever seen it so seamlessly done. Now Face Time will only be working over Wi-Fi in 2010. [ Background music ] They're working with carriers to get that resolved that we hopefully might be able to get to do it over 3G or maybe 4G networks down the road. But here it is your first look at Face Time for the iPhone 4. I'm Brian Tong CNET.com
