Google Talk with Video Calls?

Google TalkI read at the Swedish IT website IDG.se that the Nokia N800 internet tablet comes with a version of Google Talk that supports video calls. Is this really true? Then why isn’t it available in the Windows client? And why hasn’t Google Talk been released for PC Linux when it’s obviously available for internet tablet Linux?

Speaking of Google Talk, when are they planning on making significant progress? It was released 18 months ago and still, it’s not possible to e.g. call Google Talk contacts from Gizmo Project, another SIP compliant VoIP client. What’s the point of being standards compliant if it’s not possible for other clients to communicate on the same terms?
