    I was shocked to receive a request "accept/deny" notification message popup today.
    It was a friend working in India and using Google Talk to contact me.

    I had no idea this was even possible on this Acer A500 tablet.

    The Video quality was very good to superior and the audio (with the expected satellite delays) was good.

    hmmm. Go Figure.

    Yup, this is standard in honeycomb and you can tell which of your contacts can video chat or voice chat by the little cameras and mic symbols in Google chat.

    It's pretty awesome. Free world wide.

    Thanks...
    Apparently there is a Google Talk app that comes pre-loaded on our tablets. Cool Beans.

    Look in your app drawer.
