I think its worth pointing out that while video telephony might be the
most prominent attribute of 3G *marketing*, that doesn't have much to do
with why operators bought the technology. Capacity and efficiency gains
(for voice, mainly) are what're actually driving the investment. Video is
about as (un)important as laptop connectivity.
