    Try going to the Contacts, pulling up the contact and clicking on the "FaceTime" button.

    FaceTime on the ipod touch will use the user’s e-mail address to identify them on the FaceTime network. iPhone users who want to call iPod touch users can simply select their e-mail address to initiate a FaceTime call, although you’ll need to upgrade to iOS 4.1 on your iPhone in order to do so.

    iPod touch users will also apparently need an Apple ID to actually register their e-mail addresses with the FaceTime network, but it’s not clear whether this will happen transparently as it does on the iPhone or whether the user will need to complete some type of sign-in process.

    Maybe I'm in the minority that would actually like to see this, but what about iPhone facetime to Macs??Is this ever going to happen? Is there a work-around to initiating facetime to macs with their email address?

    Yeah I also feel like I'm in the minority with this wish...... when I saw the iphone 4 having a front camera I immediately thought "video calls to computer"... I am shocked that not a single app does this yet. (Technically it is possible to build such an app using the approved API's.)
    Is Skype sleeping?!

    I am actually wondering why an update to iChat has not been released that would enable this. Don't 98% of all Mac's sold in the last few years have an iSight camera built right in?

    FaceTime only works with:

     • iPhone4: http://www.apple.com/iphone/features/facetime.html - and -

     • new iPod touch: http://www.apple.com/ipodtouch/features/facetime.html

    Because iChat and FaceTime are completely different and incompatible apps.

    iChat makes connections between computers via the AIM chat server from AOL. 

    FaceTime connects iPhone and iPod touch using an AT&T system.

    100% of current iMacs and laptops have built-in iSight. 
    Only Mac Pro, Mac mini, and Xserve do not include iSights. 

    I could not find authoritative information about the iSight fraction because the information in the Apple 10-Q and 10-k filings split sales information between desktop and laptop categories, but not by individual models.
