Typically, once or twice a week, someone posts a thread about how they want to know if Apple will put a front facing camera on the iPhone? But why would you possibly want video-conferencing on a phone nowadays? 1. AT&Ts network can BARELY handle calls without dropping them, what makes you think you will have an okay experience with video-chat (which takes a lot more data)? 2. iPhone's battery is a short one; constantly uploading/downloading video during a video-conference would kill the battery faster than anything. You probably wouldn't get more than 15-20 minutes of a video conference that is an 'okay' quality. 3. Apple's a big believer in minimalistic design; you think they would put two cameras on the iPhone? Or if they just had one camera, the front facing one. You wouldn't be able to take a picture of anything without knowing what you're taking a picture of (since the screen and camera are on the same side). 4. Do you realize what type of angle you'd get using a phone to video-conference? You'd have to stick your arm completely out to remotely get your entire head in a pic - at that point, you cannot see your iPhone's tiny screen as much. Also, try holding your phone at arm's length for long periods of time - tell me that is not uncomfortable. 5. How many other people have video-conferencing on their phone? Who would you use it with exactly? But, I guess Skype would be an option here. I feel at some point (3-5 years), video conferencing on a phone might be tolerable - but it will be like MMS. It's something that seems great on paper but once its there - you'll use it 2 or 3 times a year just because you can.
