iPod Touch Is the First Mass Market Video Phone?

TouchVideo

Ross Rubin has a good post up at Engadget on how Face Time is set to enter ‘prime time’ now that it is coming to the iPod Touch. Here’s a small slice that grabbed my attention:

… imbuing the iPod touch with the ability to make video calls greatly expands Apple’s addressable market with FaceTime, brings the touch into a whole new category and possibly makes it the first affordable, carrier-independent mass market videophone.

I hadn’t thought much about the impact of having Face Time on the Touch, other than it being a hugely attractive new feature, and I think Rubin’s point is a very good one.
