I strongly believe apple is saving a few surprises for the iPhone 3G launch!! Front camera, Flash player, copy/paste, video call & mms... maybe some of this features aren't ready yet, don't forget the 2.0fw is still beta. Also the iPhone 3G patent mentions: Instant Messaging Flash and Quicktime in Safari A blogging client Java software downloads MMS messaging Voice activated commands Voice Recording Optical sensor for videoconferencing None of these features were mentioned yet...

At first I thought it was a camera (it could be, I want a front facing camera) but if you look at the video, at first you see the "camera" but after 12 seconds when he turns the "camera" is gone. But Im not sure and I hope there will be a camera But it didn't looked like that Im afraid

It looks like the reflection of the light bulb of the ceiling and nothing more. The phone doesn't seem to support MMS let alone two way video calls...

it looks like a smudge...if you watch the video you can see the frame where the "front facing camera" would be, then the next frame when he asks the audience to clap she turns the phone away from the direct light were it looks like there is no camera. In my opinion it would be able to be seen with or without light.

I doubt it's a prototype. Looks to be a front facing camera. Remember the post a few days ago with iPhone/iChat posters? They're going to break into Windows internet chat market to ascertain viability and generate demand. It won't be released in July, since it's not mentioned on Apples site. Why would they do that when they can 'officially' update the handset again and flog it after January's WWDC? Think about it, only die hard Apple fans will buy this since it's still locked into an extortionate contract/tariff. There's loads of features missing in this hardware release - including higher quality back camera and ability to use any SIM card. Bet that's going to be the next big thing in the 3rd Gen iPhone. They've made deals with global mobile networks which means lots of money in the bank to fund further phone development/production whilst encouraging product demand.

I'd put a vote in that he was just using the first generation iPhone like all of the other 2.0 beta testers have been using all this time.

It looks really convincing though. And he had the case on so people wouldnt see what the new iphone looked like before steve presented it at the end N41

True, although, why would he have it wrapped in this ugly grey cover for an official presentation? I think he was definitely hiding something and I vote for the prototype hypothesis !

Hi, I thnk not. If so, why would Apple hide such an important feature at the launch event? /D
