    I'm guessing BBM Video Chat is one of the new features of BlackBerry 10 devices since BB7 smartphones do not have a front-facing camera. It's pretty cool, but I would have preferred if you could have used BBM over Wi-Fi, :cry: (that's where Apple wins with FaceTime).

    What are your thoughts about BBM video chat?

    It is decent. I have it on my PlayBook as that was a feature on this tablet. Interesting to know if tablets can video chat mobile phones.

    Avent that is a good question. Does cross device operability work in Blackberry multiple device type video chat sessions? I always hedge when getting a device that automatically promotes video chat.
    In business I often opt out of video mode, it isn't necessary and often proves a unnecessary distraction. I am a woman and do business with a lot of men, there are a lot of unnecessary remarks made and dynamics that come into play i would rather be spared.

    It's only possible with the Z10 and Q10 since the other blackberry phones have no front-facing camera.
