    I haven't heard anyone say this yet - maybe i am wrong though - but is it too far fetched for the 'front facing camera' to actually be an indicator light such as those found on a blackberry?

    i know i hate when i have to constantly unlock my phone to go in and see if i have an email. maybe the indicator light is to show a new email - push notification - or text message instead of having to slide and open the phone.

    (improved battery life as well)

    prove me wrong please!!!

    Well, I think that there will be a front-facing camera, but what about that "unknown hardware feature" that has been showing up in leaked front panel casings?

    i don't think it's a camera. i think its an indicator light. there has been no proof that the camera works.....

    att can't handle the bandwidth of all iphone users streaming live video to one another - let's be real.

    Have you bothered looking at Gizmodo's teardown of the phone?

    It's a little thing called WiFi.

    Consider me intrigued! As for the camera, I hope they smart it up and utilize it in a more interactive way. Maybe even for navigation.

    navigation?
    all that is internal.

    the front facing camera would be cool - and some of att's phones already stream live video.

    i just think it may be a little much for this next hardware update.

    You do know they've taken the prototypes apart and looked inside right? It's a camera.

    Also, how do you explain all of the video iChat references in the 4.0 OS code?

    That's because no one could get the device to work in general. I think all of the prototypes have been locked by the time the news staff got their hands on them.
