At MWC, in the Texas Instruments booth, there could be found a cozy little shack up of the unlikeliest of partners. Get your head out of the gutter man. We’re talking about Pathpartner and Ittiam. At the event, Pathpartner demoed 720p video calling over that famous VOIP app, oh what’s it called? Oh yeah, Skype. You may have heard of it? As of today, Pathpartner is working with Skype in an attempt to get “Skype certified”. The app makers hope to successfully secure a number of other vendors, besides Ittiam, to get their application arriving stock on mobile devices.
The company’s senior technical lead, Alexy Mathew Joseph performed the demo on the OMAP 4 chip set platform, an extremely powerful CPU touted by TI. The OMAP 4 platform offers a number of powerful options such as 1080p video recording and playback, 20 megapixel imaging and approximately a week of audio play time. And now we can add 720p video calls. It’s no surprise why Pathpartner wants to develop the rich video application on a handset running this platform. This is certainly promising for Android users as it opens up a slew of doors when it comes to communication over video. The app is being reported as possibly hitting Android devices some time near the end of 2011. Head back over to Talk Android as we keep a close eye on the company’s emerging product and don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below.
