“During a 90 second segment of his weekly Podcast show ‘Diggnation’ this past Friday, Rose told viewers that Apple may be restricting third parties from authoring applications that run in both the foreground and background partly because it doesn’t want a competitor to its own mobile iChat application that will do just that,” AppleInsider reports.
“More specifically, he claims that a 3G version of the iPhone hardware due in a few months will employ two digital cameras situated back-to-back — one on the front side of the unit behind the transparent touch-screen, and a second one on the back of the handset as it exists today,” AppleInsider reports.
“Combined with the mobile iChat application, the front-mounted cam will pave the way for live video conferencing over AT&T’s high-speed 3G wireless network with computer-based iChat users, as well as other second-generation iPhone owners, according to Rose,” AppleInsider reports.
