    So I was looking around on ChinaTrade, the site that contained the infamous next gen bezel, because I wanted to compare the current 3G bezel with the next gen bezel...when I came across this...

    The title of this part says "Apple iPhone 3G Touchscreen with Front Lens."

    The most interesting part about this picture is that if you look directly above the earpiece, you see what appears to be a front facing camera!

    However, I am confused. It says it's for the iPod in the description yet it has an earpiece opening. It also claims that it is for use with the current 3G iPhone. I also began to think maybe this could be for the next gen but then again, it seems inconsistent with the leaked bezel. It does seem to be consistent with Apple's patent that they submitted...

    So tell me what you guys think??

    It even says on the page what it is. It's just an OEM repair part for the front section of the 3g :)

    Front lens = glass

    PoorEnglish does not equate to rumors, you are reading waaay to much into it

    as others have stated this is just a iPhone 3G glass+ digitizer.

    It is insane how many people want the front-facing camera, even though all we have is a single patent. If people wish hard enough, it may come true!:rolleyes:

    Oh, and I'll beat a dead horse. That part is for the current iPhone 3G.

    And a good day to your sir.
