After rolling out on the iPhone 4 and the latest iPod touch, it looks like Apple has further plans for FaceTime. Rumor has it that the video communication program is destined for Mac OS X and even Windows-based computers.

It is being reported that when iLife '11 rolls out soon, FaceTime will be integrated into the newest version of iChat for Mac OS X systems. Yet no one is sure how this will be launched for Windows. Perhaps it will surface in the form of its own separate software program. We'll have to wait and see.

FaceTime is also supposed to make its way to the iPad eventually, but we probably won't know more about that (officially) until a second-gen version is unveiled, likely early next year.
