Front Side Camera On Phone 3G, Another Unannounced Feature?
If you want to see it better, you can click the embedded video and click "watch in high quality". That's definitely not a finger print and it's too big to be any of the current sensors. Is Apple leaving out the front side camera from the specs now to get more headlines before the iPhone 3G launches, like Apple did with the original iPhone's update to a glass a screen? A front side camera could be cool, but it's not really useful because nobody I know has one.
Keep in mind that Apple doesn't show any of the sensors in press shots and that Steve never took out an iPhone 3G to show the crowd. Gizmodo and Engadget got a quick preview in a dark room, and on the original iPhone, you can only see the sensors in direct light, so there's still a good chance that that really is a front-side camera.

Anyone thats been following the 3G iPhone knows this. Images were leaked earlier before the launch, showing the option to talk.
Not only that, Steve Jobs showed a slideshow containing battery life times, one being for "3G Calls". Clearly thats a huge indication that its there.
Not that this matters though, 3G Video calling is rubbish.

Those "leaked images" were fake. 3G calls are to make calls over the 3G chip, rather than the 2G chip, and doesn't necessarily mean it's for 3G video calls. I can care less if the iPhone 3G has it, but it would be cool if it did
