How to make video calls without a front facing camera ?

With so many of us already used to making mobile video calls on our iPhones, Androids and Nokias, it’s hard to imagine a world without it…
Our friend Phil also has the mobile video calling mojo. He invented a contraption called The Vainworks Stand to help make video calling a reality even for folks without a front facing camera.
Through his clever phone stand, he can help folks without a front facing camera enjoy all the goodness of video calling.

Take a look at Phil’s video and check out his website

Happy video calling.

    I have a Droid X, which has a rear-facing camera. I use fring by using a mirror! I turn the camera lens on myself and the screen faces the mirror through which I can view my little granddaughter. No problem! It works great! No need for a front-facing camera! Just get creative. My son called me on fring at lunch today. I had no mirror but I had my Nook and the reflective screen acted like a mirrow and I was able to see my granddaughter perform a new feat! Love it!

    Hi,
    Due to the vast variety of devices we cannot offer a list of models.

    Here are the Symbian devices that should work correctly with fring: Most of the Symbian 9.X and Symbian ^3 devices are supported. Symbian Anna and Belle are not supported at this point. Video calling is supported only on devices with a front facing camera and Symbian 9.2 and above. If you have a specific model you want to inquire about, let us know which.
