    I am sure Facetime will be brilliant with the IPhone 4S but I don't understand why Apple put such a poor front facing camera on the IPad 2 and did not upgrade it on the new IPad when the put a Retina equivalent display on the new IPad. The PlayBook has a better front face camera than the IPad. Still maybe they were thinking ahead about going onto 3G network and wanting to use less data. Now this brings me to the my next point, in my industry we perform real time processing and data transmission and have all sorts of lossless data compression algorithms, so if this is possible why have they not implemented it for data transmission over the 3G networks. RIM BB uses less data for that reason, but I feel certain that it is still not using the latest techniques, and Android and Apple should look into it.

    Hear, hear Dave. Android and iOs should look into it. But do they want to? There´s prizes for system data consumption paid by the carriers...so I´ve heard.

    I suppose I can forgive no compression on the early IPhones and Androids, but with the new processors it is possible to perform the compression on the phone.

    I'm just hoping I can hang onto my unlimited data with verizon as long as I can, until it's gone i'm not worried about going over...I've been using facetime over 3G since these babies came out (via jailbreak of course) All this talk of going to family data and kicking everyone off unlimited totally has me alittle worried though....
