jfanning is on a distinguished road
Price has nothing to do with it

I can get a package in Finland that includes 3000 minutes and 3000 minutes video calls as standard.

No one uses video calls except to try it out.

I just read a couple of days ago that less than 1% of all calls are video and it is so bad most operators stopped even reporting any statistics.

I can't see how Apples attempt improves on 3G video calls in any way at all except better quality. There is absolutely no usability improvement because 3G video calls were dead simple to make anyway. And the WiFi limitation makes it likely that all calls will be done from home anyway and there I have a much better system in my PC/mac and Skype.
