Mideast iPhone 4 lacks Facetime video feature

26 September 2010

Feature is similar to the banned Skype service

The iPhone 4, which was recently launched in the UAE by Etisalat and Du, does not carry Apple’s free video calls application, a feature similar to the banned Skype service, The National has reported. FaceTime is one of the features incorporated into the latest iPhone models elsewhere, allowing users to make free video calls using a front-facing camera over a wireless internet connection. The same application is also lacking on iPhones on sale in Qatar.
