Re: Reinventing the wheel
This is a great feature to add. My thinking is that in the future we are going to see a huge increase in video calling as people become more comfortable with the concetp. We're not quite there yet, but the technology is in place. 

What's interesting about T-Mobile doing this is that they don't have the best coverage for doing this. But it is certainly a differentiator for them.

Reinventing the wheel
A limited number of Android phones being able to video call each other on T-Mobile doesn't seem like the best use of R&D and licensing dollars. Skype, Facetime (for iOS), Tango pretty much have this market covered I'd think. How about more towers? Or inventing brand new features?
