I understand the camera and no camera debate has been beaten to death.. What I speculate is that there is a big PATENT reason Apple has not included a FRONT facing camera in their mobile / non computer devices. I'm guessing that someone has a patent on: Front Facing Video Camera in a portable device. This would be different that a portable device with a rear facing camera to capture images for the purpose of storing photos and videos. Anyone have any thoughts on this, have you searched for something like this? I wonder if the current ITC investigations would be part of the reason..
