    I've been reading every rumour, front page and bit of "insider info" that I can in connection with the next gen iPhone. One of the common predicted features seems to be a "front facing camera," which if it turns out to be true leads me to a question....

    Will there still be a camera on the back?

    It may seem to some people either a dumb or obvious question, but I don't see much use for a front facing camera, other than those ropey video calls that cost far too much to make. But the camera on the back is a no-brainer when it comes to taking pictures etc...

    In the FP article?

    Also, your use of 'ropey' FTW.

    Yes, Apple would be really stupid if they removed the back camera, they will probably upgrade it. I'm hoping for a flash camera.

    My FP article is quoting sources quoted by Engadget.

    Also, it would be highly unlikely (and borderline insane) for Apple to remove the camera on the back.

    If apple removes the back facing camera then we won't be able to see what we are taking pics of. So I don't think they will.

    No not just the front page (thats just one of many), do a google for "iPhone news" theres plenty of Rumour about, and the front facing camera's one that gets mentioned frequently...

    If you look at the engadget picture, it looks like there's a camera (a very small one) next to the ear piece up the top.

    Well, most people would use the back camera more than the front one (video chat), so I doubt it.
