Cingular plans simultaneous video/chat within year is reporting that "Cingular Wireless plans within the next year to offer a service allowing customers to share videos with each other and talk at the same time." The article states it's part of the netwrok operator push to drive more mobile data usage.

Yankee Group analyst Linda Barrabee thought "Cingular's service may appeal to young cellphone users or parents showing-off clips of their children. But the success of such a service would depend on price and how well the company explains it to consumers." She said, "It goes back to marketing and price points."

We all know how good the carriers are at pricing mobile content and services at a reasonable level. Yeah right....
