Excerpt: Since the telephone first rose to prominence there has been chatter about the video phone. BT tried it years ago before there was even broadband - and before there was even ISDN - and it was always a flop. But it didn't fail because people didn't want it, it failed because a phone and video are not a natural pairing. Even on mobiles people don't generally make video calls, because it's awkward and uncomfortable.
Pros: Superb quality, easy to use, zoom and move feature, sound is brilliant
Cons: Quite expensive, big and a bit ugly, uses electricity all the time
