    Apparantly you can now call phones in the US and Canada Free right from Gmail!

    To entice people to use the new Gmail phone capabilities, Google says calls from the platform to landlines and cell phones in the U.S. and Canada are free--for at least the rest of the year

    I wonder if this'll be the new generation of Skype? Pfft, what am I kidding, Skype days were the shiz. Still, it may be just as epic.

    The calling will always be free as Google has stated before.
    They said that charging for long distance will pay for the free calls.

    ipod touch with gmail phone

    Will the newly released gmail phone feature work with an ipod touch 3G? Calling phones with gmail phone seems to work great with a laptop.
