Next iPhone Coming With Video Chat?

Will There Be Video Chat on the Next iPhone?

Obviously, I was a little surprised at the lack of a camera on the iPad, mostly because it could serve as a great device for video chatting, but I didn't really consider the benefits of that ability on the iPhone. However, there's been some pretty compelling evidence uncovered over the weekend which could suggest that video chat capabilities will be coming stocked with the next iPhone. This means a forward-facing camera would have to be installed before it hits shelves, which is historically released each Summer.

I'm getting pretty excited about this possibility, since iChat is a great way for me to keep in touch with my family, and virtually hang out with my pals when we're far away from each other. If I didn't have to whip out my laptop every time I wanted to see someone's smiling face, it would be even easier! What do you think — are you on board with an iPhone coming with video chatting, or do you see it as a waste of time?

I think it's a good idea, but only if they have a 2nd camera or tiny lcd on the backside (like the outside display on a flip phone) so you can still use the camera function to take pics of something other than your own face.

you awesome as it would be to have video chat anywhere...i think overall this would be a nightmare. imagine people video-chatting while they drive, are in movies, in line for food (or anything), on the treadmill next to you, or basically anywhere out in public that people talk on their phones (annoyingly sometimes). horrible!!! i think a forward facing camera on the ipad would make much much more it is still "mobile" but not as much as a phone. i just think the bad far outweighs the good on this idea....
