2010 could be the year for the video cell phone call. The Utah-based outfit Saygus plans to roll out what it calls the nation's first two-way video cell phone service this year with its Vphone mobile device.

The Android-based Vphone will not only support two way video calling, it will run zillions of Android apps, store gobs of digital content and have plenty multimedia chops besides mobile video chatting.

But many obstacles remain. Video conferencing has been around on land lines since the 1960s, but consumer adoption has remained tepid.

Still, it is remarkable how quickly Saygus has exploited Google's Android OS to develop an intriguing new product.
