Yes, if you have an internet connection to it! You should be able to IM, Text and email to whomever is on your contact list! You can call and video message (live video) if you have an auxiliary webcam hooked up or have the tablet turned towards you so the frontal camera can catch your image? That's one of the reasons I really love these little tablet PC's is that I can do everything that a smartphone does and more! Best compromise between a cellphone and a PC! Hope this helps! Be Well!

This camera was designed to only be used by apps such as Skype, however there is a work around.
Search the Play store for "Camera Launcher for Nexus 7". It is simply an app that will give you the icon for the camera, and you will be able to use it just like any other device.
Hope this helps.

The Nexus 7's from facing camera will only work with an app. Whether it is a video chatting app or a picturing taking app, you must open an app first to enable the camera. The camera does come with a native camera app, though, so you won't have to download anything if you wish to just take simple pictures with the front-facing camera.

Landscape shows up for some things (apps, movies through Google Play, etc.) But its not on the home screen or if you upload your own videos. HOWEVER apparently you can get an app that makes this possible. I just haven't done it yet. But it is possible to view in landscape for most things WITHOUT the app.

Flash is being phased out on the latest Andoid Jellybean devices in favor of HTML 5. A lot of people do not miss Flash. IPAD does not have it either. However, I missed Flash in watching some web videos. Google chrome, the browser that comes with Nexus 7 does not support Flash. I downloaded the Flash APK app and Dolphin Browser, which does support Flash. I can watch anything now. You have to get Flash APK off the web, the Google Store does not have it. If you google "setting up flash on Nexus 7" you can find detailed instructions. It really is pretty simple. Downloaded Flash, the new browser, enabled Flash on the browser, done.

If you google nexus 7 no flash you can find solutions to this. I have read you can get the beta fire fox browser and sideload flash. Seems like trouble (I hear it is very easy though) but unless you want to buy an older tablet that doesn't have jellybean it's what you have to do.
