    And if so, what do you think the resolution will be? 720p?

    Yeah I would think 720P just like the iPad.

    It is a higher-res screen, we just don't know the resolution or the pixel density yet. Can WWDC get here any sooner!!!

    I don't get what's the point. It'll just take up more room than a non-HD video, and do you really feel a difference on a tiny little screen?

    Yes. I mean recording. I would like to upload higher quality video clips to youtube from my iPhone.

    Not for on the phone, but when you put it on your computer and play it on your TV it definitely will make a huge difference.

    You do realize people connect/stream things to their tv? But in a sense you're right who's gonna shoot some serious video from their phones?

    OP changed the initial verb from "playing" to "recording".

    whatever it records, i hope it will prevent people from recording tall, narrow videos.

    i hate that. JUST TURN YOUR PHONE SIDEWAYS WHEN YOU RECORD AND IT WON'T LOOK RETARDED.

    I hope for 720P

    I Have seen other digital cameras with 5mp sensors that can record HD.

    Look at how small the Flip Mino HD is and that has been out about two years now.

    The technology is available to make an HD cam that small.

    I wish, but highly doubt it.
    Hopefully Apple proves me wrong, I wouldn't mind a 720p video camera in my phone ;) (not that I need one)

    I thought the 3gS had the capabilities to record in 720p.

    I think it's a high possibility because when Apple announced the iPod Nano 5G with the video camera, Steve Jobs said they wanted to get in on the video camera market and this would be another way to go about doing that.

    There are references in the SDK to 720p input, so I'm assuming the new camera will record at 720p.

    If that were the case we wouldnt have 12MP cameras in phones now would we.

    720p recording would look good on my big plasma when I play it back later.

    Depends on your definition of serious video though. Used mine last year for family holiday video.
    Results were excellent when assembled through iMovie except for low light situations.
    For most users, this is the typical use for video and better quality movies would be nice especially if you want to view them on an iPad
