iOS 4.1 Beta 3 Brings Support for FaceTime Calling via Email

Apple is taking FaceTime seriously now. Apart from making simple FaceTime video calling via iPhone 4 to iPhone 4, the new iOS 4.1 Beta 3 brings support for calling your contact for a FaceTime call via email. Mac Rumors reports the following:

A new option in the iOS "Contacts" application allows users to make FaceTime calls using either a phone number or an email address. This would allow FaceTime compatibility with devices not associated with a phone number such as future camera-enabled iPads and iPod touches.


So there you go! this if anything hints towards a strong possibility of next-gen iOS devices like iPod touch 4 / 4G and the next iPad featuring a front-facing camera for FaceTime video calls across all the iOS based devices. iPod touch 4 / 4G at least can be expected to be unveiled at the upcoming Apple Media Event in September of this year.
