    The iPhone has a 2 megapixel camera in its .46" body.

    The Macs have a 0.3 megapixel camera in their (for instance, a MBP) ~.25" bezel.

    Can a 2 megapixel camera fit into the bezel? Im guessing yes...Is that too high of a resolution though?

    So for the upcoming iSight upgrade: can we bet on it being 2 megapixels?

    Not much point at the moment; the camera is primarily for videochat, and molto di bandwidth would be needed for live 2MB video...

    What about even increasing it by a little?

    And just because you use the camera doesn't mean it's automatically for videochats. Maybe a setting could be for pictures using a higher resolution than if live video?

    One megapixel is more likely, I see your point, but maybe the generation after next...

    I thought the current iSight was 1.3MP?

    Well, my math might be wrong, but as I understand it, 640x480 is .3 megapixels.

    yeah that's true actually, I think I've been taking it for granted that it was the same as the 1.3MP logitechs and similar, as the picture seems to be a lot better with the iSight. The built in ones are definitely worse than the external ones though.

    Any kind of upgrade would be nice. I want something higher than 640 x 480.
