I'm just a bit curious at the stat of mind people have with wanting to video conference on their phones, and why articles like this http://i.gizmodo.com/5144555/next-generation-iphone-may-have-videoconferencing-at-last stil persist. Do people really want to be on the go and talk into their phones and see people seeing them on the other end? Maybe I'm naive to think that a front camera...aside from taking self portraits...is kind of a useless feature. Now granted, on my macbook I have my isight camera built in and I've used it for photobooth pics, or as a replacement mirror for shaving, but in all seriousness I've only used it for "video chatting" like all of 2 or 3 times. It's fun for a bit but I expect the same thing to happen on the iphone that I've come to realize happening during an ichat video conference...you sit there staring at each other with nothing to say and feeling awkward. Can u see someone on the iphone at starbucks just yapping away into their iphone doing this? The argument for using this at home or on the road on a business trip...wouldnt you have a laptop that can do this anyway? It may still feel awkward for me but there are some things i prefer on a laptop then on a phone. I've come to the conclusion that my iphone is great for quick access of data and information on the go. Showtimes, traffic, weather, price checks, quick sms messages. Something quick and easy just works better and on the go on a mobile device like the iphone. When im on it for more than say maybe 10 mins i long for my laptop. And here is where i personally believe video conferencing on the iphone is unnecessary. Someone prove me wrong? I dunno. Maybe international people have more of a need for it than say people in the states, and i guess their argument is that they havent seen friends and family for ages or something...but even for me; people I havent seen for ages, i'd rather just talk to them on the phone then to see them staring awkwardly at a camera. I guess that's why you see so many international students vid conferencing on their laptops at cafes? And lets not forget...kepping an lcd screen on to display video while using 3g data to talk = huge battery drain.
