    No inward facing camera.

    So even if the camera was pointing at you
    you wouldn't be able to see the screen

    so no

    no app will make this possible

    unless you can plug a mini usb webcam in

    i doubt it'll happen

    sorry

    just Gtalk?

    I know that there is no forward facing camera. But what is on the top Right corner of the screen(portrait) to the left of the blinking red/green light?? There is a spot on my screen protector cut out so it wont cover it.????

    I believe that would be the proximity sensor (to turn off the screen when putting the phone to your ear)...

    That is the facial recognition blah, blah. All it does is turns the screen off during calls, so you do not inadvertently press something with your face while on a call.

    I'm not so sure where that sensor may be. One day the sun hit my phone and I noticed 2 more sensors of some sort in the upper left corner of the phone as well. Anyone know what those are? Take a flashlight to it and you'll see it too. :confused:
    Thanks!

    I was gonna say Qik as well. I used it over the weekend. I went to VA to visit family and I shot some videos and emailed them to my Mom in another state and it was like she was there almost. The only delay in time was uploading the video and sending the video as an email. Now obviously she is only seeing what I am sending.
