This may be very obvious, but by using contextual clues we can deduce and confirm that the next iPhone (hardware and/or software) will feature video recording. Why? At the 3.0 preview event, MMS was specifically defined as being allowed to send one of four multimedia items: contacts, locations, audio, and photos. No mention of video at all, not even during the recap. Users are reporting that they have received video MMS messages. If the iPhone is only going to be able to receive video messages, it would have been announced as a part of the MMS segment at the preview event. It was not, so it is 100% safe to expect a formal video announcement with recording, sending, and receiving at the release of the next generation hardware and/or final version of 3.0.
