If they are smart they are looking hard at supporting video calling somehow using the video camera in the latest iPhone. Apple rolled out this change at the same time as the big hoopla around the new iPad, but it is a huge change and one that will open up the way to some very interesting VoIP apps for the iPhone.
If they aren't already available, you can expect to see apps roll out from iCall, Fring, Truphone, Skype, Numbuzz, Agito and others.
