Posted by A STAFF WRITER

Fring has enabled free, two-way Internet video calling for Android-based devices. 


The company already offers the same service to Nokia (Symbian S60) and iPhone/iPod touch owners. 

"With Android users on over 50 different devices logging into Fring everyday, we [deployed] the open Android platform to rapidly develop the first two-way video calls over Internet on Android," said Fring CEO Avi Shechter.

"The demand for this feature has been overwhelming as more people discover richer ways to use their mobile phones. We continue making free mobile video calls widely available, satisfying the market's want for more rich communications tools that these smart phones were designed to deliver."

Shechter added that Android's market reach - combined with the openness of the OS - allowed developers to swiftly create "rich" communication solutions for multiple devices.
