Yahoo! Messenger now lets iPad 2 owners for video chat with PCs or Whatever..

Yahoo just announced that the newest version of its free Yahoo Messenger app will be optimized for iPad 2 video chatting, and it allows users chat with others using Macs, PCs, or whatever.

As long as you have the newest version of Yahoo Messenger, you’ll be able to video chat cross-platform to other video-enabled devices.
Yahoo Messenger has a wide install base and you will be able to make video calls to any device with a camera and a compatible version of the messaging app. Besides video calling, Yahoo Messenger will also send SMS messages for free. 
Fring brought this same kind if cross-platform video chatting to iOS a little while ago, but there aren’t nearly as many people on Fring as there are on Yahoo Messenger.
The new Yahoo app also includes free texting capabilities, but the texts won’t come from your phone number.
