Would it be possible, or has it been done.

Could you use the camera with some software that sends a video stream over the WIFI that can be viewed on another device?

Wow. Based on the huge amount of traffic, I am guessing the answer is no.

I thought web camera plus allowed one to do this with a device synced over bluetooth or wifi, even through 3G.

i could never get this to work well with my tytn2. have not tested with the touch pro, however.

support is lacking for this app as well. it is the only one available, so its up to you if you want to try it out

That won't allow you to use it on your laptop though....

I have used the webcam plus...
Is tricky at times to get working but it does work. I suggest locking the phone though because you WILL hit buttons on the scren trying to point the camera since you can't see the screen.

I havenot trie bluetooth or WiFi but if you can sync your phone to your laptop using those methods then it should work.

I'm not sure how the IP webcam app for Android (linked above) helps since the Touch Pro runs Windows Mobile.
Anyway, for VOIP, the app PortGo actually works fairly well on this phone.

Just trawl this site: freewarepocketpc.net or even XDA because I am sure I saw something a few months ago just like what you want.
