Fring outs 1st cross-platform iPhone 4 video chat

Fring today updated its namesake iPhone app (free, App Store) to enable some of the first multi-platform video calling on the iPhone 4. The addition uses the front camera for two-way video, even over 3G, and will support it with any other device that can use a similarly equipped version of Fring, ranging from other Android phones like the Evo 4G to some of Nokia's Symbian S60 devices.

If one side doesn't have video support, the app can still send one-way video from an iPhone 4.

The update is also a sweeping revision to bring in iOS 4 features and lets Fring run in the background to take a video or voice call. A new social stream shows a log of conversations and social network updates of all kinds, and the address book should be simpler to use.

Fring and video calls are free outside of any 3G data rates.
