The BlackBerry does not have a front-facing camera. I don't see how you could do any type of effective video conferencing with that limitation.

At minimum you would need a Bold (3G GSM for voice+data at the same time) and it would be streaming low quality video over the network.

Justus von Liebig discovered how to coat a glass surface with a thin layer of metallic silver in the late 19th century. It could be used to accomplish the desired effect of a front-facing camera.

I think the technology is still a couple years away, and I don't believe the demand is all that great from what I've discussed with former colleagues in the conferencing industry.

This is true, but look at the cell phones with PICO projectors built into them! Its amazing what companies are coming up with these days! I would love to see video conferencing on our BB's!
