It certainly would...it's always puzzled me that Nokia built it in, but 
it's basically redundant, as it's not usable for any application apart 
from the camera app for taking stills, and Nokia's own chat which no-one 
uses (unless I've missed something here).

I've been using Skype and Gizmo for a while, and the *transmitted* sound 
quality of Skype appears to be superior to that of Gizmo, as tested by 
calling the same set of contacts on both, within a 2-minute period on 
several different occasions. I could hear them fine, but they said my 
voice was broken up, and too strong in the treble range. I don't know 
enough about audio programming or VOIP transmission to know if this is 
an accident or something in the code.
