Well, one problem you'd have is that the iPhone camera faces the wrong way, 
so you wouldn't be able to participate in a bi-directional video chat, 
although you could passively listen/watch video from other sources.

Given that there is already a Mac OS X port for AG, it shouldn't be hard to 
get it to work on the iPhone, which uses most of the same source code for 
the OS.
