    Ok, my droid does not have a front mounted camera. How about two small rectangle mirrors mounted at 90 degrees with one edge of mirror touching just below
    the phone camera lens... and with some simple holder, it could turn phone into a front facing non reversed camera (2 mirrors -- like a periscope.)

    Has anyone constructed this? Seems like it could be a simple product accessory that could world for multiple phones.

    _ Dash is phone with camera backside pointing
    \ / to one of two mirrors shown as slashes & V.
    V

    Well? Anyone

    ummmm, or just turn the phone around...

    do you really want to walk around with a phone that has mirrors glued to it in your pocket?

    I found this thing called iSnapMe. It's made for iphones but it may work for other phones. It does cost $20 though.It works by having two mirrors and suction cups that attach the device to the back of your phone. I think they may fit on the Droid
    It's at isnapme.com. I didn't buy one, I just happen to find it after doing a bunch of google searches. It would be nice to use this with my droid on Fring.

    Ok, and NO,.... Sure I can turn the phone around and some phones like the new iPhone 4 have front and rear cameras.... If you are doing vid conferencing then a front facing camera is necessary so you can see the other party and the postage stamp of yourself...

    Thanks for this link... I have sent an email to their
    CService to see if they have reports of this working for
    the Droid... Seems to be the only product out there...

    I also wonder if the flash is also reflected correctly.

    I've contacted both Vainworks and iSnapMe and they only work with a camera on the back side of the phone not in the middle of the back. So neither the iSnapMe or the Vainworks Stand will work with my phones. I need something like these 2 items but that will work for the Garminfone and the Comet from T-Mobile. Does anyone know of anyone who makes such a device, if you do please email with the information to daveporterii@gmail.com. Thank you for any information that you can provide.

    Dave Porter :rolleyes:
