    Does anybody had developed something related to Video Calls?
    I need to develop a Video Portal, with the same functionalities of a Voice Portal, but using audio/video.
    Please post any information about it.
    Thank's.

    Err, the camera is on the wrong side for starters. Second it is a camera not a video recorder and third there is no such functionality in the Apple API.

    I'm talking about iPhone 3G that has a video camera on the right side =)
    My question is if there are a way to run an application at the same time of a call.

    The basic idea is an user dial to a number (like on a voice portal) and after that number answer, show and tell all options available for user.

    I have an iPhone 3G sitting right in front of me. It only has a camera on the back: the wrong side.

    And the answer to everything else is no.

    I've heard some rumors that the new hardware version of 3G will come with 2 cameras... one for photos and one for video calls.

    Sounds like bollocks to me. Apple have only just released the 3G, what makes you think they will release another one soon? Plus there is no video call API anyway so all this is academic.

    As I said... I've heard rumors about it.

    But I personally think that Apple won't be behind his competitors like Samsung and Nokia that makes 3G devices and supports video calls.

    I don't think Jobs cares too much about feature-to-feature comparisons with other devices. If he did we would have had FM tuning on the iPod 6 years ago (or any of the other "iPod killer with feature XYZ" that has been announced since the birth of the iPod). Right or wrong his formula worked, and I can't imagine that changing at all for the iPhone.
