    What do you use it for besides two-megapixel pics? Is there a video chat option like FaceTime on iPhone 4?:thinking:

    Videochat has just been added to google talk, or google voice, cant remember which. So you can video chat with other people on android phones with a front facing camera as well. Unfortunately it doesnt work on phones without the front facing camera (you would have though they would have made it one way, or allowed you to sit with a mirror behind the phone :p)

    You can also make a recording of yourself via front cam.

    @bogdanrs, wat app are u referring to? if ur referring to yahoo messenger (its simple titled messenger in my app drawer so i assume u mean that) it does not support front facing camera last time i checked.

    and @OP, yes, many apps now include video chat that extend beyond wat facetime can do. google video talk should be active soon, on android 2.3.4 (still not yet active on the current official firmware but hopefully soon), skype now supports video calling.. tango supports video calling.. all good uses for ur front cam. it all works on 3g + wifi, and u can connect to skype/google talk users on computers as well as mobiles...tango is coming up with a desktop app too

    and also, like someone else said, u can use it to make recordings of urself :D i love the quality of the front facing camera, my friends desire S has crap quality when i video call with her..

    You can now make Skype video calls with it as long as you upgrade swype. You can also take photos and videos...or use it as a mirror ;-)
