Canucks get video-calls first in North America

Video_callThey might not currently have the Stanley Cup thanks to Carolina last year, but they do have video calling on handsets thanks to Rogers Wireless. Canada is the first nation in North America to have true video calls on cells; the service is provided over the HSDPA network offered by Rogers. First video caller? Who else but native Canadian, Captain Kirk William Shatner, who we all know invented the wildly successful StarTAC way back in the late sixties with his Star Trek communicator.

I know we have a few readers from above our northern border: anybody have any more details on the actual phones that can use the service? Bonus points if you’ve used it yourself, and of course, you hit the jackpot if the Starfleet called you on Shatner’s video phone. ;)
