    I believe DroidDave mentioned this in another thread over the weekend and I thought, "Hah! yeah right..." But I was just standing outside in the sun and noticed that it does seem to have a tiny lens in the top left corner of the phone. It could not be very good quality, but it does seem to be there... This is not wishful thinking on my part because I cannot see myself ever having a need for a front facing camera anyway, but it is interesting.

    There are two lenses there...one is a light sensor so it knows how bright to make the screen, the other is a proximity sensor.

    There are two one the left of the phone.. One is a light sensor (to adjust screen brightness) and the other is a proximity sensor so it can turn the screen on when your talking on it.

    It's a notification light. Lets you know when you have a text, email, missed call, etc.

    While we are on the topic of features we should probably be aware of...
    FYI: that button at the bottom of your phone is actually a mouse... sorta. It took me 3 days to figure that out.

    I'd like to see a firmware update on any phone that would get the wife off my back for day.

    haha I actually used to think you had to press it hard, it's REALLY nice how the optical mouse works. I used to think it was weird, but now I really love it.

    Actually OP could be right. Haven't you guys seen Transformers?

    I could see it popping out with an OTA update.

    I thought it was the button I press to take a picture. :D I rarely use the mouse part because I forget it's there.

    You need to read the user guide before making an additional discoveries. It has done wonders for me, and it will do wonders for you.

    You know what i just realized? When in the browser, you can press/hold the button and it brings up a list of operation shortcuts. I especially like the "Open new window" button. Much faster than going into the menu, then the Windows, and then clicking the plus sign.

    This seems to work in many apps. It's sort of like 'right-clicking'.
