    Just a thought, but couldn't a couple of folding well placed mirrors create a front facing camera. Sure everything would be reversed, but it would solve that problem. Also is someone could manufacture a case that has a sliding cover for the camera. It is always so exposed and over time could deteriorate picture quality. Maybe the mirrors could be the cover. Not bad huh?

    I'm thinking an app could be developed to "flip" the camera image...

    Yes. That's what I was implying. I thought it was a good idea... and my mamma said as long as you think you're beautiful, f*#@$ anyone else.

    There is actually a really rare technique to getting that front facing camera. I learned in my travels to the mountains of Tibet that it starts with stretching your arm out, smiling, and turning the phone 180 degree's.

    At least you got to see some great scenery while not being able to see the screen, which is the point of the OP.

    tbh I wouldn't want to video-chat anyway...those iPhone commercials freak me out.

    Lol!


    Nevertheless, the OP has a pretty bright idea that I've yet to hear about elsewhere. I have absolutely no need/want for a FF camera, but that is a cool idea.
