Default Can you take a self portrait with the front camera?

Can you use the front facing camera on the EVO to take self portrait pictures? I don't imagine you'd be able to easily line up the rear facing camera very well without being able to see the screen at the same time.

Thanks.

It's not hard to angle any kind of camera for a self portrait if you practice a lil' bit, I've become pretty good at it with my point and shoot... The front camera is meant mainly for video chat, but I'm sure it'll be usable for photos as well, be kind of dumb if you couldn't use it... No clue how you'd switch which camera is used tho, surprised no one's covered this on the reviews or previews.

^ you click "switch camera" in the menu settings on the cam app. Phonedog tried to but was in a hurry and didn't see the option so he moved along. I hope the front cam takes pics...good for Facebook & MySpace.

I can confirm that you can use the Front camera to take pictures. The max resolution is 1 megapixel.
